There is a documentary called ‘Degenerate Art: The Art and Culture of Glass Pipes’ that actually covers the history and relevance of Bob Snodgrass and his art. How it was first sold at Grateful Dead shows in the parking lot and helped grow borosilicate glass art. Bob invented many aspects of borosilicate glass art like fuming the glass with precious metals. A genuine Snodgrass is as much a piece of history as it is a piece of glass art.
This is a fumed Deadhead tip by Bob Snodgrass. Bob calls them “Rasta Beads” and these are used as beads, but this one is shaped to a tip. He told us he made the tip to take a variety of RAW tips from small singles, to larger cones. A smaller tip sinks down and larger ones pinch up a hold earlier towards the end. This has two Deadhead skull faces opposite each other. These are most affordable genuine Snodgrass solo pieces we’ve ever had. This will be a real scoop for someone out there to get a Snoddy in their collection. Beautiful fuming is thick all over and there are a lot of color hues all over the piece. 2 inches high, and 1 inch wide. Amazing glass art from Bob Snodgrass and we all thank bob for our Snoddy!
The details are many on a piece like this by Bob, and if you are lucky enough to get this piece we encourage you to get in touch with Bob and the @SnodgrassGlass_Official account on Instagram and ask them about your Snodgrass if you have questions.
