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 an amazing UV reactive Maptech bead by Bob Snodgrass. Several colors of alien heads are all over the bead with stars too. The Maptech background looks great and “Glass by Snodgrass” is in the Maptech too. Bob and Bob Badtram worked out their approach to this stenciled fuming earlier this year. Two of the alien heads are Illuminati and react under UV light. There are several stars too. 1.75 inches high, and .8 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: I’m waiting on UV lights. UV shots will go up soon.
