~4:20 Peace Pipe~

This here is a collab w/my shopmate mark....traditional style-this piece was inspired by an Endagered Species (Extinct really) called "Indians"or Native Americans......This was made for my friends new Club opening on 4/20...the feathers are from a hawk ,there's a sea shell and ceramic bead w/ leaf on the leather strap-feathers are tied w/hemp twine and bees wax-it's about 18" long X 8" tall....i figured i'd wait for all the other 4/20 posters to calm down a bit....and i guess i was a little lazy too.....so ,thanks for looking!

I like the overall shape of this piece ....but it's got some bubbleage here and there...This piece was made from various leftovers from a class...
it's got a couple of blowouts of O.G. moss-clear/strikeing color blowouts,and hand mixed Disco Sparkle/India green...a raked flower too...and like i said -some boilage from torquing on the Disco a little hard...overworked the moss a bit too.
Thanks for checkin out my stuff.......

>>>>>> '97 <<<<<<

" I suddenly became stangely inebriated.The external world became changed as in a dream.Objects appeared to gain in relief; they assumed unusual dimensions;and colors became more glowing .Even self-perception and the sense of time were changed.When the eyes are closed, colored pictures flashed past in a quickly changing kaleidoscope. After a few hours,the not unpleasent inebriation,which had been experienced whilst I was fully conscious,disappeared.What had caused this condition ?"
~Albert Hofmann, Laboratory Notes (1943)

>>>Thanks for checking out my Art.<<<

*And a big shout to all those that have supported me & supported my Art along the way.
**Thanks to all the guys i used to work with and bounce ideas with in Boulder.
(H-Bomb,J.A.G.,Newman,Brother Willis,Pabilsag,Galactic T and everyone else that was there back then)
***Big Thanks to Everyone on this site for all the Inspiration and Influence and all the people that make it go 'round.
