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.

This is a silver fumed Skull sidecar steamroller by BT Glass. A large Deadhead is on the can, and there are also Deadheads up and down the stem. Silver fume blue permeates the piece, but there are some nice greens in the base of the can. The elongated Deadhead face has blue eyes that shimmer with color when light is on them. Note that the can comes off the right side of the stem here, instead of the more traditional left. I can use it in either hand, but the size borders on two hand use anyway. Fantastic fuming from BT!

It’s 7.1 inches long, 3.6 inches high, and 2.6 inches wide it’s a piece on the border of large and medium. The Sanskrit symbol for “OM” is in fuming on the bottom of the can. The oxygen blast from a steamroller can give a headrush, best to sit down when you roll. Beautiful work from Brad Tenner of BT Glass!
