You Design It; We Make It! Glass animal named Faith designed by Lorelai made by Helen Tegeler

In this You Design It; We Make It! demo, Helen Tegeler brings Lorelai's design to life. Lorelai says, "This is a shrubmatailt. It’s a sheep with a carrot nose, butterfly wings, rabbit ears and black hearts on her fur. Her name is Faith. Her wings are red inside and the outside is rainbow stripes and blue. She had a long crazy blue tail." See the final piece starting at 1:37:40. Have an idea you'd like to see made in glass? You can now submit a drawing from wherever you are! Here’s how it works: - Draw your idea on a piece of paper - Take a photo of it, and upload it using the digital submission form on - Include a description or “artist’s statement” - it helps our team understand your idea - Be sure to include your name, age, and contact information so we can reach out to you if your design is selected Our glassmakers will choose one idea every other week and make that piece, livestreamed from the Amphitheater Hot Shop on the Museum's YouTube channel.
