Glass art is extraordinary. The fragile beauty resulting from that glowing, hot goo seems almost alien. If you have ever watched a glassblower create art, you know how hypnotic it can be. Watching a good glass artist can make it look easy but ask them how it’s made and get ready to pay attention. Creating art with glass takes careful planning, dangerous tools, and skillful technique.
A lot of live demonstrations took place at cannabis events and thanks to the coronavirus, it will be a while until the next one. For those of you who have missed out on some glass art instruction, it’s not too late! Watch Artist Black Octopus create a custom carb cap and hear all about the techniques used.
