Millie slices will be viewed and approved prior to the competition.  You are to have a set of 24 millie chips to be able to play in the game.  Chips must be made solely by the artist, no collabs, no exceptions.  You will be playing against other artists in a game of keeps. *not smaller than a Penny, preferably over a nickel*

Goblet Grab

1st Place Qualifies for Master’s Finals

This is our standard goblet contest.  Prize money and wild-card possibilities will be judged on by Glass Game judges, and 1st, 2nd, and 3rd will win their respective prizes. All artists will be “selling” their goblet for $200, CHAMPS will provide a redeemable ticket to the artist for the goblet. CHAMPS will sell tickets at $200, 1 per person, per availability of goblet/mug/cup/chalice/etc. at a first-come first-serve basis, e.g. If we have twenty entries, we will sell twenty tickets max, one per person max. All entries will be on display at the show the morning of Sept 28th, if there are any additional tickets available, people may purchase as many tickets as they want first come first serve basis. At 3:30 PM CHAMPS will draw #s for placement, when your # is called you have 1 minute max to choose which entry you want to exchange your ticket for. If an artist would like to be involved in the “grab”, they may submit a second entry, this entry will be in exchange for a $200 “grab” ticket, you will also have a chance to place twice. Do not bring a duplicate cup, this is going into our store owners collection, and we are looking for a “bigger, better, badder” grab. Also making two different Goblets gives a better chance to win. You MUST be present to win. Winners will be announced before close of the CHAMPS show, Sept 28th

-Goblets must be judged to be valued at a minimum of $200 to participateSept


Game of Marbles

Winner of the “Nicest Set” qualifies for the Master’s Final

CHAMPS Glass Games is proud to present A Game of Marbles.  Bring a full set of marbles, 1 large shooter and 12 smaller pieces to participate in the game at the Denver CHAMPS show.  The nicest set of marbles wins the artist a spot in the masters and a cash prize. 

At the show, competing artists will use their own set of marbles to compete in the actual game of marbles, also known as “Ringer”.  Use your shooter to knock your opponents marbles out of the ring.  First to knock out all ten of your opponent’s marbles wins the round. 

The event is tournament style, meaning winners continue on to the next round until a champion is crowned.  As the game progresses, more and more marbles are used in each contest, however winners get to keep an ever-increasing amount of the spoils of war.  A Game of Marbles is a great way to exchange your own work with some of your favorite competing artists and friends.  Winner of the actual marble game wins all of the marbles they “conquered” as well as a cash prize.

Marble Specifications:

Sizes: 12 “regular” marbles 18-20 mm diameter each

1 “shooter” marble: 25-30 mm diameter

*Marbles will be measured at show and must be within the target size- No Exceptions!

  • All Marbles Must be Round

Chicago 2022 Glass Games Results

Team Molten Art – Terpinator 


Carsten Glass

Hoobs Glass

Two Teams Go Head-to-Head for $20,000 in Chicago!



Team Captain

JOP started in 2001 making him a 21 year veteran in flameworking.  He creates amazing sculptures through glass.  “If nothing else, view my work as original.  Technique and craft can be learned, originality cannot.”Josh is a Philadelphia Pennsylvania native and still calls that home.  He is a graduate of the University of Arts earning a BFA.  He has had his artwork on display around the world, often blurring the lines between what would be a visible pipe and what would be the non functional sculpture.  With such a broad range, it is difficult to isolate what is his particular style.

Hoobs started in 2001 making him a 21 year veteran in flameworking.  He is from Torrance California which is still where he calls home.  He has had an interactive mind since childhood, so glass was a natural calling for him.  In 2010, Adam created the first glass sneaker which gained him world-wide recognition for his mastered sculpting.  Hoobs loves pushing the limits in glass with some of the largest project builds ever created with borosilicate.  His work has blended cultures and helped expose the art form to a broader audience.

Carsten Glass:

Carsten started in 1995 making him a 27 year veteran in flameworking. He has a vast knowledge of techniques and styles that has come with that time.  Carsten truly loves every aspect of glass working.  He is an Oregon native and still calls it home.  Carsten has said the hardest part of glass is creating something new that will shock everyone.  He wants to learn all aspects of glass in every form and wants the chance to work with as many artists as he possibly can, in his career.



Team Captain

Eusheen started in 2000 making him a 22 year veteran in flameworking.  He creates beautiful flow in all his designs.  He is a Takilma Oregon native but currently calls Evergreen Colorado home.  Eusheen has a free-flowing style with intricacies and control of detail and color.  His love for sacred geometry shows in the fillacello work he creates, and it is some of the best examples of fillacello designs.  He finds joy in teaching his techniques, which has taken him all over the US and to Japan.

N8 Miers:

N8 started in 2002 making him a 20 year veteran in flameworking. He is originally an Olympia Washington native but Evergreen Colorado is where he currently calls home.  He has created a signature look with his glass, creating views of intergalactic space, N8’s style is very outer space/galaxy influenced.  N8 is always seeking out and learning new techniques to keep his mind and art fresh.  He is also a very diverse cannabis aficionado.

WJC Glass:

WJC started in 2002 making him a 20 year veteran in flameworking. He has the pleasure of calling Evergreen Colorado home.  WJC is well known for his incredible color combinations and Flower of Life patterns, which sometimes can take him more than 60 hours of artistic labor. He uses his glass as  way to document his spiritual journey.”There are not many people today documenting their perspective of reality into something that’s going to be around for a long period of time”
