Bent neck 1000 glass crane collaboration with @takaomiyake. This piece is available. 📷 by @pyroscopic
Before you ask, I have not forgotten about the crane project. I live with it everyday. I have had some difficulties along the road and I’m currently searching for a venue. I will have info soon about a small VIP event where I will present the installation in a more intimate setting than I envision for the final showing. Keep your eyes peeled for that shortly after New Years. Thanks for the love support and patience.

I met @espglass many years ago at a Phish lot at the old Spectrum in Philly. I was hustling pipes on shakedown and he walked up with his case introduced himself as Jesse and opened it up. I knew exactly who he was. I had been drooling over a peacock feather covered Sherlock he has just posted on glasspipes.org a few days earlier. And now I was staring at the same piece in person. Everything about it was perfect. The line work, color combos and all the feather like attachments. ESPs attention to detail is second to none. He posted up with me on shakedown all day and we raged. All these years later I still consider him a good friend and style mentor. He slid thru town a few days ago and we got down on this mini bent neck. Once again his sections show off his unique style and masterful control and understanding of line work. My part is ok too. Lol

Happy Hanukkah! It’s only 4 days in and I think I’ve already ate my weight in latkes.

Not bad for a colorblind guy. Shout out to every shopmate I’ve ever had that would help me out when I constantly ask “Hey, what color is this?”
