The Art of Patrón

A couple of weeks ago, I was contacted about a craft/art contest sponsored by Patrón tequila, and I am so excited to tell you about it! 

Admittedly, I'm not a big tequila drinker. I prefer whiskey, rum, or even bourbon, but that's beside the point. Despite my ambivalence toward tequila, I am a fan of Patrón. Patrón comes in beautifully crafted hand blown  glass bottles that are in themselves small works of art. I've always wanted to take a glass blowing class... But again, that's a story for another day. ;)

So what's the deal with the contest? Well, artists and crafters age 21 and up are invited (and encouraged!) to reuse and re-imagine Patrón bottles (or any part of a bottle) into artwork or a functional item.  Ten finalists will be selected to win a cash prize, and one grand finalist will win $10,000!

All you've gotta do is make something, write up a brief description, submit it to and cross those fingers! And for you non-tequila drinkers, you can even buy empty bottles on ebay. How easy does that make things? ;)

So what do you say? Wanna play with pretty bottles with me?! Submissions are due April 30th!
