Gingerbread on candy cane skis You Design It; We Make It! designed by Quinn made by George Kennard

This week's designer Quinn shares the idea behind their design: "Gingerbread cookies are my favorite holiday cookies. Nothing says home for the holidays like baking homemade Christmas cookies with my family. I also like doing outdoor activities with my family when it snows and eating candy canes. That’s why I drew my gingerbread man skiing on candy cane skis." Watch glassmaker George Kennard bring Quinn's design to life, assisted by Helen Tegeler and Catherine Ayers. See the fully baked gingerbread out of the oven starting at 1:55:55. Have an idea you'd like to see made in glass? You can now submit a drawing from wherever you are!
