How do you think I feel, It's already the 2nd here
Bingo! This is how I'll pull the trigger on this.
I've been lusting after that very Mobius piece and would love if the model Lev is making was like this. However, I seem to remember him posting some pics a while back of what he was thinking of making and I don't remember seeing anything like this. I'll have to go back and see if I can find the post...
edit to add: This is the post I was thinking about... in the one afterwards, he says he was thinking about making something like these. Don't know if that changed?
Well ladies and gents. I have put the FC bubbler in the oven and it is complete. I have changed the piece just a little and hopefully you all like it. It is a disc perc bubbler but i did have to change the price point. The first bubbler with a disk perc is 16" 0.7 glass and a disc perc. I sadly had to price it at 200. But the second piece will be a shower head perc and will be around the 150 price point. I am sorry the price shot up but with the design changes. i hope it will be well worth it. Since it is sunday I will upload the pics tmrw in the afternoon.
Oops. Read above.
How tall is the second bubbler?
The 7mm disc sounds like a steal, but some people's(me) ball and chain make these types of purchases cost nearly twice as much....
I just pre paid her for a pass for the cloud, now this....
I thought id make a affordable disk for everyone. Ik everyone else is charging way too much. I pretty much am only covering time and cost with a small profit margin on these. But i want ppl to enjoy them. N yeah this is the final production of Leviathan Pipes. I hope you guys enjoy it.
Sorry to here this will be the last run. There is usually good things at the end of rocky roads for good folk. Best wishes to all involved(fam, employees, You). Things will work out eventually.
This is going to be a tough one to convince the wifey... Can I pay for it and you hold on to it a few months?
Well, I would hope Lev, if you move all these bubblers... it could quite possibly move any leftover inventory you have also. If enough, it might put you right back in the game. Also... it could very well, create a demand. You are going to be surprised. If people like this... its your ticket. You can give the middle finger to your old problems and start with a breath of fresh air.
This is going to be exposure, from what I know... you haven't ever experienced. Wait until your bubblers start showing up on Youtube!, on some pretty damn influential channels. Those guys are regulars here.
If I blew glass... I'd be bOObs best friend in the whole wide world.
Good luck then Sir Lev of Leviathan.
Eagerly awaiting pics Lev
But damn you for making me choose between the disc and the showerhead...
roughly how tall are the showerheads?
you said 16" for the disc, but didn't say for the shower.
Gonna have to wait another few weeks because of the price.
But thats just because im cheap, not because the price is too high or anything,lol.
not sure if i can afford either of these pieces + the shipping costs cause of the price change since im low on money and i know my student loans from college are going to start rolling back
the rest of you better be uploading videos of these bubblers in action so i can at least enjoy them that way!
Same here. Sad to see the price went up so much.
I have really lost interest in my glass collection. After breaking my tube w/ 6-arm tree, none of my glass satisfies. My MiO is too small for a perc really. One beaker has too much drag, the other is too plain and can't hold up my 11-arm tree perc. The last beaker is a monster and not pleasant to use for vapor. Bubbler (Vapor Bros clone)... BORING. The perc on top was a novelty for a while. Worn off. Tired of Mickey Mouse rigs...
Of course, doesn't help I've broken like 2 or 3 percs lately. So my mix and match potential is hampered.
I think someone needs a padded room to smoke in. Maybe you could rent out an old asylum.
where's the glass porn?
pitty the prices have gone up a bit, yet I would still be interested if I like the pieces...need pictures
guess not huh?
Only thing I got and sorry, I can't go into specifics. I don't think he'd want me to, unless it came from him.
Got a cryptic response from him, a while ago... after asking where he was. Trying to get more details wtf is going on. Though, it didn't sound good.
Kind of like, I'm not so worried about the glass, as I am Lev.
Well, after not hearing anything in regards to the cryptic message.
I've asked Lev, if he still plans on releasing the bubblers. Last he said, he was throwing them in the oven. However, given the nature of his text to me, puts it in doubt. Don't worry, nothing shady like drugs, the mob, etc. I also asked if he's still moving old inventory.
If I hear from him, I'll let you know. He has my number and an offer to help any way I can.
wtf? cryptic messages? the mob? lmao...this thread sure has taken a strange turn. i guess the search for inexpensive quality glass continues...
Indeed, a bit of a let down for affordable glass.
Hmmm...if Lev is gone from the scene now (for whatever reason), and he's not making an "FC bubbler", then maybe this is an opportunity for a different glass blower to step up? Seems like a prime chance for someone. Lots of hype and interest already here--just no product. Glasstafarian? Cleardome? Someone else? Seems like there was someone else on FC who is a blower, but I don't recall who right now.
Edit: maybe I should start a new thread.....
