There is also a tutorial section on GLDG that has some basic spoon tutorials.

Although I would have no problem at all discussing pipes on this board, there aren't a lot of pipe-makers that visit here, so you probably won't see a lot of pipe discussion.

Come join us over at Talkglass. We don't bite, though there is plenty of licking and nibbling going on.

Yeah, the crew over at talkglass leans heavily toward pipes (and the occasional marble), just like the crowd over here leans toward beads and pendants and such. Some of us dabble in everything - which is cool too.

I like the green one with the plunged dots, Gary. Very nice design.

Thanks Chris. I'm becoming a big fan of what you can do with with fuming and cobalt.

James, not bad to be self taught. How often do you get on the torch?

Dave, that pendant is killer. Nice job on all of it, but I love that pendant

Thanks. I made the pendent to wear to last years DFO.
James, I have learned more hanging out with local pipe makers in their garages or studios. Most are very open to help you learn and most are quite good at other work also. Take a look at Burtoni, Dwreck, Shackman and Vertigo to name a few. Great glass art background which you can see in their work and great people to spend time with.

My pipes crack a lot. Then I go in the local shops and they have so many for so cheap it is hardly worth my time to do.

I've been laughed at by many, many shop owners that only want to sell cheap Chinese crap. Oddly, they usually ask me what I sell my crack and meth pipes for, then I just walk out. Probably twenty to one shop that buys from me. I find that shops that have the headier pieces are more likely to have a "local" section. They are usually more respectful to artists also. Luckily I live in a large city with thousands of shops.

James, find out if for that $300 you can come back for clarification on any issues you encounter with the techniques they teach you. If so get that $300. You produce a product that has an established market. Get out there an hustle. I started out setting up tables at bars and what not early on. Anywhere that heads hung out. Most turned me away, but it was worth it when it happened. My pipes were wonkier than yours at that point, so I know you can make some money. I paid my mentor, and it was well worth it. No tutorial will ever improve your technique like working with another artist will, especially if they are more advanced. Time to show us your war face son.

Queen, at what stage do your pieces crack? Are you garaging between steps? If so, what temp? I'd love to see some of your pipes.
