    Okay, so I've seen way too many threads go up lately about glass, glass artists, etc (yes I know, guilty as charged)...

    As such, I got to thinking... whats the EASIEST way for people to check out whats available in the MJ related glass world (and then some!)? Seems to be Instagram at this point. basically EVERY glass blower/artist has an IG feed which he/she shows off their wares to both sell and just to show off. In either case, this is the perfect venue in which to explore these artists as potential clients... or maybe simply to just admire from afar given the cost of some of this stuff. I mean, everyone likes to window shop once in a while, heh.

    So, in summary, I invite you FC members to post up anything on IG glass related. When you do though, I just ask that you follow these simple rules:

    • Post the Instagram USER NAME and/or HASHTAG for the person/shop/piece you are trying to show us.
    • Please include a URL for those who are on a desktop style device and dont have an IG app available, as such: http://instagram.com/caligulasruination/ <--shameless plug (the websta.me link would also be greatly acceptable, lick such: http://websta.me/n/caligulasruination)
    • Brief description as to why you're linking us to this stuff.
    • If possible, please include a snapshot/example. The easiest way would be to use the website: http://websta.me/ to hot link pictures posted on IG accounts by opening said pic, right clicking, and copying the image URL as such:
    http://websta.me/p/773897174290703978_11414520

    [​IMG]

    In any case, let me start by introducing you to the master who did the work I used as an example above:

    #puntington

    http://websta.me/n/puntington

    Puntington aka "Punty" is a god in the glass world. He makes amazing pictures with glass that I've never seen anyone able to replicate as well as being the master of the rainbow wig-wag. He's also a big 80/90s cartoon/video game fan, as you can see in his art.

    That said, I hear people (who prepaid) wait over a year and his stuff is NOT cheap (well into the 6 figures and above).

    Wow, Punty's work is amazing. I really dig the 80s/90s cartoon style.

    Has me thinking about how neat a Bubble Bobble bubbler would be…

    Indeed, I'm not limiting this to well known artists. If FC members are of interest to FC then it would no do be included as an IUIFC.

    BTW I not so slyly included my IG information in the OP. ;)

    My tag is s****** over there. I'm starting to get into glass fusing, and will be posting some of the work on IG (so I'm def interested in your stuff @farscaper . I also plan to post more pics of custom pieces there, because it's so easy to tag the artist who made it and get them some new eyeballs.

    <font = urkle>Did I say 'stuff''? I meant interested in your 'duff'. Because I hear your ABV has lots of trichs left in it. :ko: Yeah, that's it.

    Mission "Redirect from awkward 'stuff' to innocuous 'duff'" has been a success.

    It's so much easier to post pics and vids on IG. There is a lot that never makes it here because of the ease of use of IG. I guess I could always throw up links here? Anyway, IG opened me up to so many different artists and styles. I absolutely blame it for my ridiculously sick obsession.

    Thank you guys and especially @farscaper. I'm now following all here (both FC'rs and Glass guys). I signed up with the handle CrazyDiamondFL...nothing there yet and nothing really notable compared to what you guys are showing. and damn @sasNW you live on the completely opposite side of the country than me...damn I miss the left coast.

    I have been dealing with this IG glass blower:

    http://instagram.com/oil_glass_contraptions

    http://websta.me/n/oil_glass_contraptions

    Communication has been excellent, prices are great and i have been sent pictures via text from the artist of various sections of the work!

    For a custom order it was very fast! Although i did not ask for too much, just the colours i was after and then i gave the artist free reign to do whatever he wanted!
    TWO days later the piece was finished!!
    I was sent a text with a picture of the USPS shipping and the tracking number!

    I should receive it next week and will post some better quality pictures and a function vid!
    It is a Klein Incycler!
    Will post pics soon!
