    kingofnull: You've got it right that heady constitues cerebral and exhilerating. I've heard people say a piece is only heady if it constitutes the use of different stlyes and techniques tied together into one cohesive whole. Like all art it is subjective.

    I say if it makes you contemplate and :mmmm: at the work than it's heady. I know people don't consider my glass heady because of the lack of linework my pieces have. It's all in the eye of the beholder.

    I do however, consider my Adam G mini dub bub to be heady. It's got fummed retti's, retti marble, an opal, a fume implosion with airtraps, and a milli slice. All of this keeps the gears in my head turning when I look at it.

    I like that addition to the definition.

    And anyone who says that mini bubler isn't heady is f-ed. My heart literally started racing while looking at those photos.

    Etsy. For cheaper than a glass pipe costs to buy locally? Yes please.

    Also picked up this Germ slide:

    Maybe not so heady, but my glass needed a little colour. My office is starting to look like a laboratory.

    Oh, and I picked up that green dish/dabber set. I think I'm going to find an artist to make me a slide in these same colours (yellow, green, while, black).

    The dabber looks like it'll be a good vape stir tool also.

    Nah, it's not a Salt piece, But it's by an artist on BM who took a class by Salt and he was teaching the eye stuff :tup:
    There's still one available on BM
    https://www.boromarket.com/forums/showthread.php?t=30875
    The middle one is still available ;)

    It should go nicely with the Blissful eye bubbler I got :D

    Could someone perhaps define the term 'heady' for me?

    I'm not sure what it takes to qualify as 'heady glass'; is it just about colored glass or is it really more about those tripy-fantasy pieces?

    A little of both :D It's the opposite side of glassblowing VS. "scientific glass" which is clear glass without "worked" parts (meaning both colors and trippy glass effects or character glass sculptures...) !

    Wow i haven't been in this thread in a while and all sorts of cool stuff popped in. Freddy that dome is SO sick. You make me wanna get a BM memebership man. As a mechanical guy that slyme electro forming piece is just calling my name. If I had the money I would be 600$ poorer right meow lol

    SD thanks for sharing that vid man it's so fuckin cool. The gas mask piece was so crazy looking.

    First and foremost, all the pieces that people have posted have been extremely Sick IMO! Love all the electro forming pieces I've seen on ALT. I own mainly scientific glass, mostly clear pieces, some with just a lil color worked in that I do NOT consider heady...I do have 1piece that has a nice worked middle section, but it was cheap and is probably a mass produced across seas piece. I will still post a pic of it Sunday. Waiting till Sunday because I also want to post a pic of a custom piece I'm having made for me this week. Should be ready for pick-up Friday, but alas I work all day Friday & Saturday so can't meet with the local blower(was going to order a DG or Mobius piece, but since i run a local restaurant i decided i should try a local artist) to pick up until Sunday. I'm Super Stoked for my new bubbler, asked for a shower head perc, spacey looking heady piece with white being main body with purple accents, clear window to see bubbles in action. Dude said he wanted to try a honeycomb perc instead of the shower head which I'm completely OK with. Will have a 18female joint (so i can use with regular vapes) male2male adapter, dome, glass nail, matching dish and dabber set. As I said I'm Super Stoked and will have pics up soon! Just made some more oil last night so I will have plenty to dab on Sunday :-)

    Nothing like a $2200 glass penis :shrug:

    Robin Hood x Ghost - Naked Mutated Zombie Vapor Rig Collab:
    This one-of-kind collab by Robin Hood & Ghost features a post apocalyptic anatomically correct naked mutated zombie riding atop of a triceratops wearing elaborately detailed copper plated battle armor.

    Good thing you're only dabbing off his back...!
