MANCHESTER — Stained Glass Express recently announced the winners of its 25th annual Just For Fun Glass Art Contest. The contest is held each April as part of a celebration of National Stained Glass Month.

The winners were selected by popular vote in three categories at a special Invite Night event.

Contest categories included Cold Glass (for stained glass pieces), Hot/Warm Glass (for kiln-fused and torch-flame created glass pieces), and Mosaics.

First place in the Cold Glass category was awarded to Joyce Jenkins, of Harpswell, for “Blue Heron Garden Sprinkler.” Second place was awarded to Jan Royall, of Kingfield, for “Medicine Wheel.”

Winners in the Hot/Warm glass category were first-place winner Lucie Boucher, of Waterville, for “Gratitude Bowl” and in second place was Steve Sinclair, of Belgrade, for “Float Glass Oddity.”
