Brian McCauley, aka gasp, discovered glass flameworking in 1998. Inspired by the autonomy and creativity of the pipe making scene he spent the next 5 years engrossed in glass. Part of the 2nd wave of pipemakers, his style pushed the boundaries of shaping and patterning, incorporating the influence of San Francisco’s urban culture and street art. Later that year, gasp relocated to Portland, OR, where he began to explore more classic forms.
gasp uses a variety of techniques to elicit an emotional response from the viewer. From subtle layering of gold and silver fume, to heavily saturated colored glass and vibrant transparents, the color and pattern create a body of work that maximizes light play within the glass.
This is a fumed spoon by gasp. A classic pipe with his style of shaping and fume. The shaping and fuming is exceptional on this piece, and the color change should be interesting! The tone of the spoon changes depending on the light and the angle you view it from. The fuming comes spiraling down to the mouthpiece with an almost reti feel. The fuming is both on the inner tube and spiraling within the sleeve. The fuming flowers out symmetrically in the maria of the mouthpiece. This is a nice touch, and there are quite a few nice details on this pipe. There are two marbles on the can and they both naturally fall under your fingers for a comfortable hold. A bit of color in the carb is a nice touch.
The generous carb makes control of your pull easy. Great ergonomics. 4.5 inches long, 2.5 inches wide with marble and carb included, and 1.75 inches high. This spoon leans slightly to the small side, but it’s kinda perfect. Beautiful work from gasp out of Portland, OR!
