    This young brother is doing some awesome work. His vortex recyclers are second to none and sick as hell. Check out this 'switchback recycler' with a 14mm female. I'm adding some glass to my collection. :tup:

    Does he have a site where he retails his stuff? If the answer is facebook, don't bother answering. ;)

    Yeah, it may seem crazy but when you post about a glass artist other people may also be interested in buying from that artist too. Is such a thing possible? And if yes, how would a person go about doing it?

    I answered your question specifically. You said does he have a site, where he retails his 'stuff'. I said 'No'. Then you went a step further by saying "Don't Answer" if this site happened to be 'facebook'. So in actuality if he had a retail store set up on Facebook, you were asking for my silence. I fail to see your interest or appreciation for the glasswork, based on you remarks so far. I posted this thread as appreciation to a glass artist and would like to foster this thread in that direction. Thank you for your consideration.

    What about this site?

    Earl Jr. Studio

    The website has instagram, youtube and facebook links and an email contact. :cool:

    That's right! Forgot about that.

    These pics from the blog are interesting...

    [​IMG]

    I'd like a female joint here. Not sure what's going on with the mouthpiece. Is it just not complete?

    [​IMG]

    So tiny...

    I really like my mini rig with female joint, but it's a cheaper piece so it has imperfections (plenty of bubbles). Would be nice to have one of this guy's more expensive pieces. Love the miniaturization.

    I have the flex mini rig. It's a great tiny piece btw. But I really want that little recycler!

    Don't quote me on this but I believe Earl Jr and Flex glass are two different glassblowers who work in the same shop. Earl Jr typically focuses on recyclers it seems

    Will want to see pics of this one. Could very well be my next glass purchase. Trying to decide between this and the Leviathan Micro. Might just have to get both. :shrug:

    Actually I'm sorry but for now I'll have to retract that price quote, as I got a different number from him in a reply on Facebook. So as soon as I get to the bottom of it I'll let you know. Or hell, maybe by then he'll be here to answer himself.

    Would be great to have him here! :tup:

    REALLY like the idea of the Micron next to the Flex Mini. :nod:

    I was about to say, $100 dollars for a mini recycler?! I bought the mini flex rig for $130, no way a recycler would be cheaper.

    Back in MY day, the Flex Mini only cost a total of $110 :myday:

    But this was all the way back less than two months ago. :lol:

    Ok. I talked with earl jr for like an hour today. Very very cool guy! And the mini recyclers are roughly 200 +\- a few bucks. He also makes a micro that is apparently even smaller than the pics we've got of the ones next to the lighters. He likes to do pendants so I'm thinking their like pendant size. About 3" to 4" overall height he said. So sorry about the misquote earlier guys but I corrected it.

    I've seen a video of the pendant. It's cool, but doesn't look like it could be used for vaping, just dabbing. :shrug:

    I hope he's cool with making female joints on his recyclers, cause I'm a flowers user and don't like female-female adapters.

    $200 is quite a bit more than I like to spend on glass, but... my goal is to have a great collection of mini glass, and the recycler sure fits right in...:cool:

    This guy's stuff looks really promising. Join the forum, Earl! :)

    Yes he's fine with putting female joints on, I already asked. I also asked him if he'd make a mini ht like the pinnacle wt and he said not a problem.

    We'll get someone to make those mini HTs with an 18mm joint. Between jhan, Sam and Earl Jr we should have a mini HT someday. :D

    Yes but Sam is out. He can't make them cost effective he said.
