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. A genuine Snodgrass is as much a piece of history as it is a piece of glass art.
This is a Tophat chillum by Bob Snodgrass with a signature in UV reactive glass – ‘Snodgrass’. The face is exceptional on the Deadhead, and there are sculpted mushrooms growing up the sides. Beautiful fuming is more silver blue in the middle and more gold yellow at the ends. Under a UV light the signature really pops, and it’s always cool to have your Snoddy be a signed piece. Dimples make this an easy piece to hold. As always, there will be details that only show up during the color change with use. That will be interesting to discover. 5.25 inches long and 1.25 inches wide. Amazing glass art from Bob Snodgrass!
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.
