Glass Art from the Galleria of Glass and Cannabis Cup

Just came across some extra photos I hadn’t posted. Some of them are actually really cool (although a few are terrible on my part as a photographer). I formatted them to give you guys a look at some of the artistic glass and smoking accessories from the BIG Galleria of Glass and Cannabis Cup.

Sorry in advance for the terrible graphic quality of some of the pics. I learned a lot about how to take pictures through a lot of very strange lighting situations and actually succeeded quite a few times in capturing the essence of some of these artists’ brilliance.

There was somewhere along the lines of $3.5 million dollars worth of art on display in the galleria alone, much less throughout all the vendor booths who showed up. If you’re looking to buy something to smoke out of, there’s no better place than the 4/20 Cannabis Cup and BIG Industry Show in Denver.

The praying mantis is a great pipe. I loved all the shaped ones, much better than animal-stamped pipes you’ll find in many local headshops.

I had pics of this exhibit from all sorts of angles. There were about 6 pieces total. Most of the pics didn’t come out, however, because of the lighting. This one still gets the general idea across of the style…

The OceanTokes guy is every bit the laid back California surfer beach bum dude you’d imagine. He even smoked me out for a minute while we talked. Hard to clean, but a fantastic all-natural pipe that is sure to impress.

When the artist opened the display case to fix something, I offered to help in exchange for being able to snap a pic inside the display case.

Also here’s a video from when I snuck into the event…
