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 one of the most ornate beads by Bob Snodgrass we’ve ever seen. There are a total of seven UV reactive millis here. BluV, Lucy, and Illuminati are all in play so there are blues, reds, and greens under UV light. There are so many boro and fume millis we’re not sure of the total count. Hand drawn smiley faces from the Mr Smiley pipe days are here. Always at least one hidden alien head. Beautiful fuming tones from top to bottom. 2.4 inches high, and .9 inches 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.

Keith note: UV shots will go up soon.
