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 fantastic UV reactive Maptech bead by Bob Snodgrass. Several UV reactive millis are like planets in a nebula. There are also alien heads and stars. The Maptech background looks great and has hidden stars in it. Five total UV alien heads on this. Two are worked with Lucy and three are worked with BluV for subtle red and blue reactions. This UV reacts in 4 colors from all sides in various ways. 2 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: UV shots will go up soon.
