Description

Tyler Massoth, or Mooseandfire Glass, got his start in glass art from his father. In 1999, at 6 years of age, Tyler started helping his dad make blown Christmas ornaments. This went on for years and he learned a lot from this informal training. Around 13 or 14 Tyler developed an interest in color changing glass and started trying to learn pipemaking. He did his own self education on fuming with precious metals, and started making crude attempts. Over the next 10 years Tyler refined and developed his own fuming and shaping style as he had no mentors to teach him. This made his development a slow process, but that is also the reason his fuming and shaping has a rather unique look – his styles were developed on his own. Tyler now has a signature heady look to his work that is striking at a glance.

This is a fumed hammer bubbler with a periscope carb from Tyler. There are 14 total marbles on this piece, and one fumicello horn. 8 large marbles and 6 small marbles including 3 down the periscope carb. The bowl and foot of the can are colored with Yellow 9. The can itself and start of the stem have Tyler’s signature bubble fuming. Like small bubbles in champagne, the fuming collects around the small bubble clusters in the glass. The boro around leans blue from silver fume so the bubble fume stands out and has a nebula look to it. Adding water with a bubbler function cools down your draw and filters for combustion byproducts. There is so much color going on from all the marbles and fuming on this.

The snorkel or periscope carb provides control over your pull. At 3.6 inches tall, 3.25 inches wide including marbles, and 6.5 inches long, this is a medium hammer. The first thing you will notice when you pick it up is the heft. This is an all-around beefy piece that feels weighty in the hand. It’s signed “Moose” and dated in Ti pen. Fantastic work from Tyler Massoth!
