An original and pretty rare Bob Snodgrass glass "Dragon Pipe" ...that was made----> in the parking lot down in Oaksterdam Coliseum on a 7 day camp-out for the Grateful Dead back in Jan 1985 .

In front of the big green Bus in a vendor's aisle at night in the magical milieu
of the Dead parking lot almost 1/4 of a century ago ....

Puff the Dragon , meets Bubba k
(note smile on Puff's face ;o)



* Bob was working on two pipes during that show , with the Bus broken down and money scarce and i had fallen in love with this little baby watching him make it the first night . Noted him grinding up pennies and dipping the hot molten glass rod into the copper filings which he applied to "Puff's" mouth to form the red colored whiskers . The beautiful blue/white opalescent swirlings were done by dipping molten glass onto silver shavings and working them into the piece ...but there was an added surprise which he showed me on Puff's belly when turned upright . Then you would see the wild eyes of a mad wizard holding to red stars in each hand that would appear the darker the glass got thru smokin' ....
(see pic below )

Amazing for that time ....there he worked on vendor row right in the parking lot , torch in hand .What a time that was , so many beautiful craftsman and spirit & magic in the air ....if could only turn back the clock , what times they were

* Somewhere near the 3rd night of that 7 day run went over to his stand & his wife was pretty upset . With big green Bus broken down and no money she told me that Bob had dropped and broken one of the two pipes he was working on during that show . To say that i was elated when Bob agreed to accept a trade of some windchimes i was making and some cash for this little dragon that survived those shows , was an understatement .

And the surprise "Wild Wizard's " eyes and hands holding the red star marbles on Puff's belly that Bob worked into the piece using fine silver shavings ...this is a real collector piece by an american craftsman & icon in the Glass pipe making world ...over 22yrs old .

Wild Eye'd Wizard
(done smoked himself into the "zone" !)



My how time flys ....my wire~Wizard friend "Twister" mentioned that Snodgrass had gotten his start working in a marble factory originally . He made the marbles the wizard is holding in this piece too . I want to really go back there to that very night & live it all over again ...if i only could!



* Some of "Twister's" wire work , also made during those shows ...these wonderfull copper wire sculptures usually enclosing some crystal or marbles would just flow off his hands . Totally whimsical nd built to last too , these were unique craftsman of that time gone by . Twister was as good with wire as Bob Snodgrass was with glass .

And wouldn;t ya know ...Twister got his start working as a night watchman in a wire factory ! Lots of time during the night and lots of wire laying around ....he taught many the art of wire wrapping back then famous for his Butterflys . Fun to watch him work and a good friend i lost track off since :

Man, Terran
What nice glass and what cool stuff

Here goes my bubbler my best friend made for me a few years back. It is over eight inches tall and full dichro with a fourplex. Hits fatter than a bong.

This is my baby. I had her custom blown w/ a 9mm thick body (27" tall) and a six finger percolator in the center. The ash catcher was mandatory for water changing sake.
