We attended the 2019 Carta Flame Off in Las Vegas and it was such a good time that we can’t NOT tell you about it!
Hello internet! As you know, we LOVE the Focus V Carta V2 and if you didn’t know that, then you need to go take a peek at this blog we wrote about it here to learn just what we love about it! When we heard there was a glass blowing competition for the Carta, we knew we had to check it out and we are so glad that we did!
The Focus V Carta Flame Off was a glass blowing competition in Las Vegas on September 27th 2019. Admission was $40 or $20 if you pre-ordered tickets and totally free if you’re a local resident. The VIP package was $400 and included early access, access to the private glass auction, a Custom Crimson Carta Kit, and a gift bag! The purpose of this event was to get a ton of professional glass blowers together to show off their skills and to show off how well glass integrates to work with the Carta Platform and they all did an incredible job. The judges consisted of Boxfan, Carsten Carlile, Mercglass, Puntington, and Windstar and the prizes awarded were a 65mm Herbert Arnold, a 40mm Herbert Arnold, and a Pargon F240 KILN. The people’s choice winner received $1,000 in cash!
We loved ALL of the artists we got to see glass pieces from but we did have a few favorites! Mama’s Glass was one of those favorites and the piece we liked best won the People’s Choice! MercGlass, Eternal Quartz, TonyKazyGlass, and 5th Element Glass were some of our other favorites and so much so that we even purchased a few items to try out with our own Cartas! The other winners were Hendy Glass in first place, Nerve Glass in second, and Hicdogg in third.
