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. How Bob invented fuming boro with precious metals, a lot of firsts with Bob. A genuine Snodgrass is as much a piece of history as it is a piece of glass art.
A beautiful fumed hammer by Bob Snodgrass. This is a hammer made in the old way with no carb. No carb makes it a very affordable fully fumed Snodgrass for a lucky collector! There are dancing people and musical notes in a circle around the can. Beautiful fuming on this with hues of different colors showing up in the light. Those colors will all change during the color change that happens with use. This is classic crack-n-fume Bob with swirling colors throughout. Reds, blues, yellows, greens and more all show up. There are some carved stars in the stem too. The fuming on the can is beautiful and it shimmers in sunlight. Sculpted dancers and musical notes are on the face. Bob signed this “S” in a large letter on the bottom of the can. 5 inches long, 2.5 inches high, and 1.25 inches wide made this a smaller size hammer. Amazing glass art from Bob Snodgrass and we all thank Bob for our Snoddies!
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 any questions.
