How do I learn to make glass pipes?
    #4170536 - 05/13/05 01:22 PM (11 years, 9 months ago)

Hey, I read the "should I flee the country thread" and thought maybe I should try my hand at glassmaking.

I'd like to make smoking pieces, but I know absolutely nothing about glassmaking.

So what is the best approach for a newbie to take? Should I take a college class on it or something?

ah, I see...so I guess this isn't something I could try on my own then? I don't know too many glassmakers but I guess I could hunt some down.

you'll need someone to show you the basics - either as an apprenctice or in a glassblowing class. you'll also need to invest in equipment and have a space to blow. im sure others will give you more info.

yeah you need to eather know people or take classes. Many glass blowers kinda get harassed by others to teach them. So it may be hard to do so. I new people out in oregon and i just hung out and wtched them for 48 hours straight. We drank coffee and smoked a couple bowls and listened to Zappa. They worked as a team for some of the things. Take classes. Id check out the Eugene Glass School. I took a couple classes there. Good staff, amazing instructors. Amazing people around there. I spent the night at a house that had 6 of Jerome Bakers main people living there. The more you involve your self in it the more people you meet and the more chances to learn you get. Cost me 2 thousand dollars on a couple classes and the equipment. Oxygen isnt cheap glass isnt cheap and it will cost a lot in wasted gas, and glass before you make any thing decient. Start making beads, work your way up to maerbles learn the way glass works and the heats used. The colored glass is a whole new world. You need to lean about oxidizing, netural, and reducing parts of the flame and how each color reacts to the various parts of the flame.

Its a life style more so then a hobby/ buisness.

hi if you want to learn ill come and teach you what i know,, its not to much because i tought myself but its fun.

im going to be in canada, toronto, for WEMF in july if you want to learn i could work somthing out with you, but you would need a setup which will run you atleast $600 (usd) and thats the minimum

pm me aabout it if youre serious about it. i could work you into my road trip :smile:

you need $1000 and lots of practice and patients.

you can order glass blowing video's that explain how things are done, but they dont really give you that much insight as to where to begin. They are good to watch at first, but even better when you know what your doing...

that's a pretty good video "essential lampworking"

Thanks guys. Zippoz, I've seen your pipes and they are real inspiration! I'm a long ways from Canada (texas actually) but I'd appreciate any advice you could give. I'm hoping to just do glass blowing as a hobby, and maybe down the road make a small living selling pipes as I travel. <--- a dream

I can't afford any sort of setup right now, but maybe in a few months. I'll have more room to work then also.

How long does it take you to make one small pipe?

Find some kind folks who'd be willing to teach you. Sometimes college campuses will have an arts & crafts type of place where you can take classes on making beads. Like the Sheik said... start off small with beads and marbles to get a feel for how it works and then work your way up.

Find your local glassblowers (they're everywhere, ya know) and ask if you can watch. If you have any little shops that sell beads and jewelry stuff, ask if they get their beads locally and maybe you can track down a local artist that way. I think the glass crowd is an interesting little sub-culture :-)

I have already done some soft glass work, but what would I look for if I try to search for a teacher in my town? Lampworking, hard glass, I had some hits with lampworking but nothing near me.
