Brad Tenner, or “BT” of BT Glass, met Bob Snodgrass in the parking lot of the Sacramento Cal Expo Grateful Dead shows in 8/4 – 8/6 of 1989. They discussed glass pipes and what was going on at the time. Bob showed Brad some things he was working on. They met up again in the parking lot of a Dead show in 1991. This is the meeting that led to Brad being one of Bob Snodgrass’s and Bob Snodgrass III’s early students. Brad went on to work on and go on tours with the Dead, and learn to blow glass with Bob Snodgrass and his family.
Brad comes from the Snodgrass school so fuming is king. It’s OG fume work by Brad that played a role in building this industry. In fact Brad was asked by Slinger to be in his “True OG’s” show recently. That show was put together to celebrate the artists who have helped shaped the industry from boro’s earliest days in the 90’s. Brad now lives in Eugene OR and is at the Snodgrass compound blowing glass daily.
A beautiful fumed hammer by Brad Tenner with amazing green tones. The array of color on this impressive. From muted greens and yellows all the way to shimmering violets. The stem swims in just about every fuming tone there is. Each window on the side of the can has an orange fume scrub flower that stands out with color. The silver white implosion in the bowl is a nice touch. A large carb provides easy control of the pull. A beautiful hammer shimmering with silver fume from Brad Tenner!
At 5.75 inches long, 2.75 inches high, and 1.6 inches wide including the carb, this is a medium hammer. Brad signed this with intense “BT” fumed signature. The color change with be fantastic! Beautiful work from Brad Tenner of BT Glass!
