    A guy at the glass studio had a Mothership Faberge Egg, and it's too far out a piece not to be mentioned here. Some of their other stuff is cool but I think the Faberge Egg is the real stand out aesthetically speaking, and the workmanship was flawless, as you'd expect for $1400.

    Their website is under construction but they have a facebook.

    Damn...that's crazy. I wasn't quite sure how it worked until checking out the video...

    I've seen their pieces online, but never seen one in person. I'll be on the lookout... Hoping the Cave, my lhs, can hook that up...they seem to get amazing glass.

    Yes, it hit very nicely and has a Swiss-perc like effect in addition to the initial diffusion. Definitely a nice piece. As a beginning glass blower, much of its construction is both a marvel and a mystery.

    I wish they could let their distinctive and beautiful workmanship speak for itself and ditch the gaudy labels. From a practical standpoint I wonder if their custom joints would make it annoying or impossible to use different slides and domes other than the ones that come with the piece.

    The one I really like:

    Have both a 75mm recycler and a large faberge egg.. Both are the greatest pieces I have hit.. They are super nice guys and have the highest skill set and are always trying to push the envelope.. They can charge because it took tons of r and d and time to make these pieces.. The honey bucket tastes ten million times better than my Infiniti nail or my cosmic.. Nothing like a reg quartz nail as there is a nice amount of surface area.. They sell out fast wherever they are and they have a long long wait list.. So they can charge what they want.. I have a ton of glass everything is put away now thanks to these two pieces.. It seems extreme but trust me you won't want to rip anything else.. I joined just to write about it.. It seems unreasonable I know.. But I bought the recycler and was soo impressed hunted down a faberge egg and a honey bucket within a week. Fricken epic

    here is my 12" Large fab egg..change to 1080p

    You can see it is hollow when i put the dabber through.

    I like the Honey bucket way more than my infiniti nail.. tastes cleaner which is funny because I got the Ti nails because the quartz on I got tasted horrible.. no surface area so it just pooled up and tasted nasty. But this honey bucket is amazing.

    here is the recycler.. 11" tall 75mm large. didn't have honey bucket yet.

    This is my first post after lurking for a while, but I thought I had to share my favorite piece of theirs, a FABulous Klien Torus.

    Mine stands right at 10 inches. I was a little bummed after I bought it and saw one posted on Kulture for a couple hundred less but still love it.

    BTW - Mine has a seed of life perc, I think they come with two different percs.

    edit: Just snapped a quick photo:

    nice!!! so that is the 65mm can? I have the 75mm from you guessed it Kulture.... rofl.. I got my egg from liquid chrome.. Both companies rock and were extremely helpful.. I ordered with next day and got it the next day.. I ordered from liquid chrome and they included 3 day expedited from canada 2 shipments in 2 days.. one honey bucket one large egg. problem with liquid chrome is they are a little expensive.. but they wouldn't have them otherwise. they had to pay more to get them sooner.. Mothership has a minimum 4-6 month wait currently. so if you see one and you want it grab it.. they are hard to find.. at least the eggs, recyclers, and honey buckets.. as well as all the prototype ones like that fab recycler. They also have an epic piece up for a raffle to help a guy who has big medical bills thanks to an accident. so it is a good cause.. go to the mothership glass page to check it out.. the piece looks epic

    I think those motherships are probably the coolest pipes on the market right now. Only thing I don't like are their beakers:
    [​IMG]

    Looks nice and all, it just seems pretty simple considering how sculpted and unique their other pieces are.

    The beaker may be simple... but that Seed-of-Life downstem definitely isn't.

    You can't quite tell from that picture, but it has 72 holes

    Note: Not saying that sexy downstem warrants the retail price on the beaker piece!! :lol:

    Yes, it is the 65mm can. Never heard of Liquid Chrome, will have to check them out. Sounds like you made their week, damn!

    Well liquid chrome is the largest headship in Canada I believe.. Honestly from the pics online I don't think I have seen a nicer shop anywhere I have been or seen online.. 3 levels cases sorted by brand.. Official roor.de dealer which is crazy.. They have over 1000 GERMAN Roor's.. That alone in terms of quality and difficulty to rep them whether you like roor.de or not is pretty epic.
