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 silver fumed Sherlock by Brad Tenner. Subtle green and yellow tones in the can add to the overall silver blue look. This is small enough for your camping trip or hike. With a larger disc mouthpiece, deep bowl, and slightly extended carb it ‘feels’ larger than it is. Different cloudy silver tones come on stronger depending on the light. The large carb provides easy control of the pull. A beautiful Sherlock shimmering with silver fume from Brad Tenner!
Held upright so it wouldn’t spill, this is 3.5 inches long, 2.6 inches high, and 1.75 inches wide including the carb. This is a small Sherlock bordering on pocket size. Brad signed this with the Sanskrit symbol for “OM” on the base of the can. The color change with be fantastic! Beautiful work from Brad Tenner of BT Glass!
