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 UV reactive Deadhead bead by Bob Snodgrass. One Deadhead face is in UV reactive Illuminati. The other opposite face has fumed eyes, and UV reactive nose and teeth. Bob calls these “Rasta Beads”. This could be used as a tip if you smoke blunts and large cones, but this is basically a pendant or dreadlock bead. It would look amazing on a quality leather necklace, and the faces popping in UV light you might stroll in to would look great. 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. There are two Deadheads facing opposite each other, and one of the faces reacts brightly under UV light. 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.
