Austin, or Mountain Glass, got started in lampwork in 2011 at the age of 18. His cousin showed him the basics of working in the flame, and introduced him to working glass artists in OR. A year later Austin moved to Eugene, a lampwork mecca, to pursue glassblowing and expand his skillset. He started on home benches at first, then the inevitable move to Cornerstone, and finally he landed in a private studio where he was able to work with well known artists. Austin lists Banjo, Hugh Salkind, Jake Mizer, Cowboy and others as his major influences. Cowboy and Banjo stand out as the major artists who inspired the Mountain Glass style and he both knows and does collabs with them. Mountain Glass is blowing heady glass in Eugene to this day, and we are stoked to add his clean shaping and crisp linework style to our gallery!
This is a CFL linework hammer bubbler with a periscope carb by Midnight Glass. CFL Terps is laid over Secret White in the can, cab disc, the snorkel carb, and the stem maria. They blend into a beautiful shimmering light green in sunlight. The light green shifts orange under UV light thanks to the Terps. A small decorated dichro cab sits on the right side of the can, opposite the carb stem. Agua Azul, Experimental Green, and Heavy Blue Leprechaun linework looks fantastic on the can and stem. The periscope carb is braced with five dots of Heavy Blue Leprechaun. Quality work by Austin of Midnight Glass!
6 inches long, 2.75 inches wide including carb and disc, and 4.6 inches high. A medium hammer bubbler with a nice heft to it. The stem ends in a thee hole diffy. Be aware, in a bubbler of this size the flower bowl is traditionally oversized. This bowl is about the size of standard 14mm slide, which is a little smaller. Basically this will mean a smaller coal and slightly smoother hits, but you reload more often. Beautiful linework bubbler by Midnight Glass out of Eugene, OR!
