This thread defines functional art.
You are knocking these pieces out of the damn park.
While my glass collection is not expanding anytime soon (el hefe slides are addicting) I have mad respect for your ability.
i would love to see some kind of electroformed king bub, these pieces are sick! you're a master with indescribably beautiful work, please continue killing it.

no real tinkering went right into making pipes ... back then color changing wrap and rake was all the rage and it was a pretty simple tech to learn. and you could sell it allllll day long for decent money. i tinkered with other techniques as i learned them till i got them down to the point were i could execute them clean enough to add to the wrap and rake stuff then moved on to those techs till i had a new technique to add to the repertoire and so on. as i got tired of doing some stuff i just faded it out of production... so pretty much self taught with a lil guidance from others on the same journey maybe a lil farther along. by the way that friend i started blowing with was freeek and bearclaw and his brother started in the same town maybe a year if that before us so we were able to bounce ideas and develop a local style of sorts... it made a world of difference to all of us i bet.

Wow well i assume you had to spend some dough on the equipment.

im looking at a nice little torch,

and have been watching mad teks on how to do pipes 10 different ways.

i know everyone at every headshop in town and they all take pieces from local blowers.

and i could probably get a job just making pipes but it would get old quick i assume

but still a cool job.

i just want to get into it for me, and if i make money thats cool.
