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. It’s a long list of firsts. The Snodgrass family is a family of glass artists who all came up under Bob’s teaching, and they have glass art in their DNA. They live in a compound in Eugene, Oregon where they all blow glass together. Bob’s family creates beautiful glass in the Snodgrass style. We’re excited to have these pieces in our gallery!
A beautiful fumed Sherlock by Bob Snodgrass III, Bob’s son. It’s rare we get glass from Bob 3. Several nationally known artists are proud to mention they learned fuming from Bob III, and this pipe is an example of why. So many amazing details tucked into every corner of the piece, and a beautiful array of fume colors dialed in throughout! This is a signed piece with “RES” and three dots in the fuming on the base of the stem. A deep bowl on this and a generous carb make for a nice functional flower piece. The color change with use will be outstanding. More beautiful glass from the most legit glass family on planet Earth!
As always if you have questions about your Snodgrass, you can always reach out to @SnodgrassGlass_Official account on Instagram as well as us. Held upright so it wouldn’t spill, this Sherlock is 6 inches long, 2.25 inches wide with carb included, and 5.3 inches tall. A medium Sherlock by Bob Snodgrass III. A real opportunity for a collector!
