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.

If you mind me asking.

as im a starting glass blower, just with beads and beginner stuff.

i want to get into the blowing game.

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.
