"Midnight Ride"

"Midnight Ride"

photograghic genius
gp, you're already in line for one of these... there ought to be at least a few of them to choose from and rest assured you'll get the homie price. it would be a lie to say i didn't think of you when i started making them.
rh photo team, ya'll have been great and i love you but i gotta bust yer balls a little. fros right, out of all the angles to shoot this piece from (and granted, there ain't many) you managed to find the ones that made that kickstand coming off the side of her hip look like a cock.she totally looks like a she-male in these photos. (not that i couldn't find a market somewhere for motorcycle girls with penises...)
he he
now that i think of it, if that were a dick, it would increase the price. have to keep that in mind next time. thanks fro, still feeling your influence.

"Smoking Goddess"

"Smoking Goddess"

Smoking Goddess by Banjo. Historically, much of the purpose to be found in a functional piece of art obviously came from the function itself. A craftsman is not usually expected to provide esoteric justifications in support of his or her work and in theory; even the most exquisitely crafted guitar should be more enjoyable to listen to than to look at. The Function delivers the statement. The trend of treating a glass pipe primarily as a piece of art and secondarily as a utilitarian device can be considered a relatively recent phenomenon and this shift from function to form is evidence that our collective voice as a movement is maturing. More and more people are buying these"art glass pipes" with no intention of using them. Many years of intensive "Schooling" has given us a profoundly deep reservoir of technical skill, and the yearning to use these skills to express our deeper emotions is becoming stronger with every day.

Spirals, Marbles, and Opals

Spirals, Marbles, and Opals

Spirals, Marbles and Opals.

back in my day
sockflips were the shit!!!
unfortunately, i never learned to do them so in an attempt to "bite" the double layer effect i so loved in PEDRO SMILEY's already legendary disk flips i came up with this method according to what i understood at the time--- inside-out flares. yes thats right, these are spiraled inside out flares, popped back open and layered again before getting added to a prepped and waiting disk. at this point, a large clear marble is added, making sure to at least get the whole panel covered up thereby making it look like an implosion marble applied to a cobalt disk.
thanks for looking. i made this after seeing all the fumey marbles on bearclaw and phreaks pieces at the last trade show. kinda took me back in time so i wanted to rep some of my old style in a new piece.
thanks again

The Trilobite Stemless Bub

The Trilobite Stemless Bub

Inspired by a Fossil in my shop. A 12" long 10" wide 4" tall Trilobite. Trilobites are well-known, possibly the second most famous fossil group after the dinosaurs. Most were simple, small marine animals. The bodies of trilobites are divided into three very useful parts the Bowl, the Mouthpiece, and the Carb. This fossil dates over 380 millions years ago.

Triple Threat Preview

Triple Threat Preview

Too many nice pieces in the gallery right now. So here are 3 pieces in one spot.

thanks to all
the positive feedback means a lot!!! particularly, the blind person concept. glass has so many possibilities much love and thanks to all who are making this whole trip so spectacular in so many ways. rocking fat patterns is where my love of glass began and all the ways that you learn to bend your mind to rock them have played a vital role in the developement of my later less patterned work. thanks thanks thanks for the love again and thanks to all the techies who more or less squeezed my out of the spiral scene by working so hard.(for at least a little while...)dont work too hard!!! i spent an hour prepping for each of these pieces and the time i would have spent spinning up the spirals got reappropriated to concept developement, creative problemsolving and pondering spatial physics.
thanks again and again hope to see many in vegas

vegas vegas vegas!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!...
