    There are a million glass blowers out there, many talented artist willing to earn your dollar.

    Who is hungry?
    Who is coming up?
    Who is blowing up?
    Who should we be watching, and who is the best of the best of the new artists?

    Talk glass, talk art, talk pricing, talk business practices, talk whatever you want.
    Anything is game and everything is relevant info.

    OK so I am not going to say who the blower is at the moment... But once I actually am holding the glass I will start a new thread for him.

    All I can say is that after all the problems that people have been having getting Cory to respond or send them what they paid for I had enough. People keep defending him and making up excuses like they know the guy or are his public relations team. All this bullshit is somehow excused by the fact that he is offering a decent recycler for a decent price of $150

    Like stated by @FlyingLow , there are many glass blowers out there. If you think Cory is the only one who can make a recycler with good vortex for $150 you are dead wrong.

    I went on the hunt and found an artist I believe can handle our needs while maintaining a level of communication and RESPECT.

    I have explained what we are looking for and gave him plenty of examples. I made drawings and tagged him to check out different more expensive pieces that we crave. I bugged him to the point that he told me to chill out and let him make me something. If I like it then I pay and if I don't I move on. I could not be happier with that response. Art is not something that you dictate like I was trying to. I apologized for being such a spaz and left him alone. 2 days later I get a text saying that he is going to start and what joint size would I like. Then less than 5 hours later received a picture of my piece in progress!

    He also has an email for those who prefer that option.

    I will post pictures he sent me when I get home from work

    Edit: Got home early. What do you guys think? I stressed the need for larger size than oil rig with more diffusion, wide base, and low down joint to keep the vape at a reasonable height. Also that it needs to vortex for days lol

    Why won't anyone else talk in here? You guys are making me double post! Come on people!

    When you all start talking I will post new update picture of the recycler

    LOL! I'll tell you it looks awesome!

    You "get it". There are a thousand glass blowers out there, certainly someone is going to step up to serve this market.

    Glass looks great and it is refreshing to see he has an email address.

    That recycler looks nice! Gridded uplines are amazing percs! The recycling chamber looks like it will vortex wonderfully and I really like the ring on the mouthpiece stem right above the recycling chamber.

    I'm getting a triple klein incycler made for me at a price that I never thought I would be able to get one for - all credit goes to @PoopMachine for hooking me up with this blower - I will post the artist once things are said and done like @blankrider is doing. I will post here once I see some progress pics :)

    Just to tease everyone my incycler should be similar to this Earl jr one but hopefully for half the price :) I think Earl sells his for around $700-800 if I recall correctly lol

    OK since some people besides @FlyingLow decided to speak up I will post an update picture. Things are looking good and I feel as though I am being given the royal treatment compared to what I have read about the Cory transactions.

    Nice!

    I'm curious - would that piece also work for a vape? Or does it provide too much diffusion and remove the flavor? I don't think it should with only that one inline perc

    I'm certainly going to watch out for that new thread..... might be one of the first few customers to actually take a leap if the first few results are good.

    .....And just maybe this blower won't ship his glass in a padded envelope :lol:

    I am hoping for it to be the perfect vape recycler. I asked for it to be larger with more diffusion and female joint. I plan on using it with my E-nano. It looks like there are about ten slits so it should offer optimal diffusion while still maintaining good flavor.

    I am definitely going to discuss bombproof shipping with this artist but even though I have not said a word yet I can guarantee that he was not going to ship it in a envelope

    I love those "cooling fins" under the female joint. And look how fat that bridge support is. Good foot too.

    I think that it is about ten holes which is what I asked for. I am sure that you could ask for less. He has been easy to work with and good at following the directions I gave while still giving it his own artistic flare

    I cannot wait to hear from him next. Probably later today

    I probably won't order for at least a month or two, but I am certainly keeping an eye on this thread and any new threads

    I got a picture message of finished product this morning! Now all that is left is to discuss bombproof shipping and pay him through PayPal

    Stop asking who is the artist. It is a secret until it arrives safely. Then I will start repping him hard and hopefully you guys order from him

    Looks really nice @blankrider! Can't wait to see how it functions, I would maybe get the perc higher up in the can and with a few less slits for a bit less diffusion, but love the style...

    I specifically asked for perc lower in the can and for more diffusion. I am so happy how closely he followed my directions. I am confident that he could make whatever changes you may need
