We’re excited to add Bob Badtram to our gallery, and this first piece is nothing short of amazing! An 7 inch round bottom bong tube that is worked top to bottom. A blue base that has so much fuming and heady work over it. There’s an amazing marble disc on the back with a fumed Deadhead skull in the Snodgrass style. The stem is a 10mm with a 3 hole diffy. So many colors in this, than change depending on the light. The round bottom swirl almost looks like Jupiter. Amazing glass art from the legendary Bob Badtram out of Eugene, OR!
This is 7 inches high, 3 inches deep including the stem, and 2.5 inches wide. A perfect piece for dabbing, or a 3 hole bubbler for flower. Beautiful heady glass art from Badtram.
