Documentary Update: Arcata, CA Banjo and Crew

Banjo, Mouse, Shad, Chaz, Drew, Jared Sandifer, and Tristan came together down in Arcata, California to create a collaborative sculptural pipe of epic proportions. These guys blew my mind with this piece, and Kris Gardner was there with me to capture it on film. Special thanx to Mouse for the place to stay, Banjo for the warm hospitality, the whole crew in the shop, Tony, Rich, Cody, Annie, Matty, Jared Delong, Dan Benway, and Robert Mickelson and all the other Arcata folk for making us feel at home.

Economic Stimulus Plan.

Economic Stimulus Plan.

here's a couple flics of my installation at SOFA NY 2009. Represented by SIlica Galleries in Philadelphia.
The theme of the work revolves around money, in both a personal and political fashion. As an artist, money and business is a frustrating yet necessary evil. There is "art" and there are "products for sale", and those cross over to different extents. Andy Warhol had a creative block early in his career and was talking to a gallery owner who told him that he should just "paint what he wanted", which led to his series of dollar bill works. My series of pieces mash's up american pop culture with an anarchist writing the script. A full cylce takes place in 5 stages, the manifestation of greed, the abuse and disrespect, desecration, hedonism, and corporate control of your mind at all costs.

there are 25 separate pieces, each is etched and painted glass and was custom framed in a high quality black frame.

experimental bubbler....

experimental bubbler....

well i got a burst of inspiration and decided to step outside the comfort zone.... it all started when a young pipemaker from quebec city stopped by my shop last friday, his skill and excitement made me feel like i had to step it up, thanx galen, he made a few windows on this piece..... the idea for the weird lil triple seal chamber on the bottom comes directly from Steve Hops and Ease, and i have to give Fro and Shad props for inspiration as well..... with this piece i was kinda just freestyling and didnt really have too much of a plan while building it, lots of stuff ill do different next time, the one major flaw is that it wasnt til i was done with the piece that i realized i wish i had reversed the way i sealed on the triple seal chamber, if it was sealed the opposite way then the piece would perc how i intended.... the way it works now is more like a force perc, its weird actually, if you blow into the mouthpiece it makes the lil bottom chamber gurgle like a reg bub....

FYCfycFYCfycF... put alot of time into designing the adobe artwork and im very happy with how clean i was able to blast the piece. I recently spent some time with the TORO/FYC crew in their laboratory, and i want to give a special big ups to JP for being not only an amazing glass artist, but incredibly skilled on the lathe. I really developed a whole new appreciation for his tubes being in the shop while he put them together. Also big ups to WAK for everything she does behind the scenes and all the generous hospitality.

Slinger, Bearclaw, Eli, Ease, Dosher.

can is 12"tall. from mouthpiece to bottom of can 14". 2006-2007

This piece is the third and final installment in a collaboration series between Slinger, Bearclaw, Dosher, Eli, and Ease. It was started in the summer of 2006 in Seattle. Cut and Flip sections by Dosher. Cobalt/Yellow/Green/White reversals by Eli. Blow out sections by Slinger and Claw. Dichro reversals by Ease. Fillacello disc by Bearclaw. Anti-Marbles by Slinger. The can was shaped by Ease. The Stem was shaped by Slinger and Claw. I picked up the piece in Seattle this summer and brought it back to Philly in two pieces and put it together. I did the main seal, the downstem seal, sit, carb, anti-mibs and sandblasting. I blasted 5 skulls around the rim of the bowl to symbolize the five souls that came together on this. Big ups to Hops and Snic for assistance on some manuevers, it's big!!

FYC collabo#4.... !1PROB! vs. slINGeR.

I made this piece for my homie PROB, local philly artist who lives in my hood. I took photos of his paintings, sketchbook, and himself, and montaged them in photoshop into a piece that is a remixed portrait of the artist and his work, mimicking his wild drippy street style. Lot's of symbolism and detail in there, we were both really happy with the final piece. Props to the FYC crew for superior craftsmanship!

the second one was an experiment which i kept for myself. I sandblasted and painted on some copper suspended in resin. Interesting stuff, it is actually copper, but the resin didnt seem to ever dry 100%, and its rubbing off now. I bought a varnish but havent tried it yet. I also pretty much f-d up the shape of the stem and the cane in the blaster so im just gonna keep experimenting with this piece. anyway....

Gouge Away.

Gouge Away.

"Missy Aggravation, some sacred questions, you stroke my locks...."

Music is my favorite medium and the Pixies are one of my all time favorite bands. Since their break-up in 1992, i literally dreamed of the surreal shows i was lucky enough to catch in the early nineties. When they announced 12 years later in 2004 they were reuniting, i freaked out! I went on ebay and bought tickets to their first scheduled performance in Winnipeg Manitoba with no plans other than i had to be there. To make a long story short, i ended up on a solo mission in the middle of Canada to see the Pixies, and after that show, i had to go to the next one, and the next one, and well, i sorta "toured" with them, and ended up seeing them 15 times in 2004. While i was on "Pixies Tour" i met two other dudes that were as obsessed as i was, maybe even more obsessed. We ended up traveling together and enjoying some of the best times of my life, and one of them commissioned me to make them a pixies tribute piece. Well about 3 years later, I FINALLY got it done... enjoy Johnny,

I Shot Andy Warhol.

I Shot Andy Warhol.

"What’s great about this country is that America started the tradition where the richest consumers buy essentially the same things as the poorest. You can be watching TV and see Coca-Cola, and you know that the President drinks Coke, Liz Taylor drinks Coke, and just think, you can drink Coke, too. A Coke is a Coke and no amount of money can get you a better Coke than the one the bum on the corner is drinking. All the Cokes are the same and all the Cokes are good. Liz Taylor knows it, the President knows it, the bum knows it, and you know it."

"An artist is someone who produces things that people don't need to have but that he - for some reason - thinks it would be a good idea to give them."
-- Andy Warhol

"I like boring things."
-- Andy Warhol

Jason is a true guru of the sherlock shape, i thank him once again for adding his magic. Thanx to my shopmate Hops for hooking up his new blaster, it works like butter....

IN GOD WE TRUST

IN GOD WE TRUST

O.N.E.

#1 in a series based on images from American currency. The idea behind this series is to explore the connotations of images within U.S. money and their discourse on religion, politics, economics and society. This series is meant to ask questions and stimulate conversation.

This particular piece is exploring the relationship between "church" and "state". Are these entities separate or co-existent? What is the relationship of economics and "god"? Which "god" do "we trust in"?

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed, by their Creator, with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.

ONE dollar or ONE "Creator"?

Mama Said Knock You Out

Mama Said Knock You Out

"dont call it a comeback, i've been here for years."

ive been cutting and painting stencils for a couple years, doing lil street art pieces, i always liked working from photographs, particularly film stills. I look for stills that have alot of emotion and drama, something that tells a whole story with one expression. I made a stencil of this Sofia Loren photo in 2005 and made a few stickers and painted it here and there in Vancouver BC. You can see that painting stencils led me right into doing the sandblast imagery that ive been concentrating on in my glass heavily for the past year; It was a smooth transition. I really enjoy bringing the photographic desgin elements into my glasswork. These pieces celebrate this transition in my work, from film and photography to street to glass... thanx for looking, sling.

Marbleslinger/Jason Lee collab marble 2002

Jason Lee and Marbleslinger.
no 1 of 8 made in august 2002 in Burlington, VT.

Jason did the green wig wag and i filled in the center window. We each kept one marble out of the series and this one is in my personal collection. Been meaning to take some photos of it forever. Each mib had a matching wig wag window and then different elements added to that. These were really fun to make, and i've been meaning to expand on this idea since then.

Mad props to the GURU Mr Jason LEE, one of my biggest personal influences to challenge myself in this medium. Never ending thanx Jason, i might have given this glass thing up along time ago if it wasnt for your positive energy and friendship.

Sherlock Tribute

Sherlock Tribute

Well this piece is almost a year in the making. I created the stencil in March of 2006. In July i was kicking it with Jason Lee and presented the concept to him. Being the sherlock master that he is, i was honored for him to agree to make the piece. But it was only partly done until i got it sent to me out on the east coast last week and finally, it's a wrap. Jason made the piece and I did the prep for the black violet tubing sections and did the blasting and design.

so little to say and so much time....

so little to say and so much time....

i caught a couple of rats in the act of vandalizing my bubbler with their wildstyle patternwork while it was in the kiln....

November 2006.

this piece was inspired by the artist BANKSY. www.banksy.co.uk.

collab... effort bewteen myself and Bryan Ratcliffe, aka CoolLiguid, aka Rat Dog, aka Rat Dizzle, aka Rat Diggler, aka Surf Rat, aka Ratty B, aka Ratmosphere.....

I conceived the idea, made the bubbler, did the photoshoping, and sandblasting. Rat Digs was hired to sculpt a rat smoking a pipe and he also attached the rat and the horns to the bub. Thanx Rat dog! Big ups BANKSY, he is one of my favorite artists.

Spring Fever

Spring Fever

Nice weather, BBQ and Budweisers in the backyard baby.... Hops was saying, yo, its spring time, time for some fume pieces, i couldnt help join in the fun and it spawned our first collabo... i think we both agreed this was an ideal marriage of function and art, a double bubbler, first chamber inline gadget, the second can has a six slit cut diffussor and a glass on glass 14mm pull.... most peeps like clear pieces so they can see the smoke, this piece involves all sorts of inside out fume work so you get the best of both worlds, lots of artwork but you can still peep the smoke....we had fun making this... HOLLA!

That Joke Isn't Funny Anymore.

That Joke Isn't Funny Anymore.

Jason Lee. Marbleslinger. collaboration stemless bubbler. April 2007. I made the coloured tubing, Jason shaped and constructed the piece. I designed and sandblasted the images. Jason has a funny sense of humour which comes out in his work and titles of his pieces, so i embraced his style of play on words for the theme of this piece. Jason Lee versus Jason Lee. The reversal patterns are Jason Lee the glassblower. The portraits are of Jason Lee the actor/skateboarder. So yea, its a joke taken a little too far, Jason is gonna be surprised, he has no idea, you like Leebo?? muahahahaha...

the one piece with the girl has a crack in the horn, oh well, thats now property of chris carlson. the black mandala piece the pattern on the front in black was designed by bearclaw, thanx claw. The last piece is kind of a slinger/claw collab, i actually made the whole thing but claw channelled his vibe through my hands, and subconsciously we manifested this lil twisted thing thats smokeable. anyway....
