Jerome Baker Designs Massive Uranium Bong
A tribute to the Grateful Dead, Bob Snodgrass, and the Glassblowing Movement
As the 4th of July approaches, many event organizers are preparing for a plethora of Independence Day related affairs around the United States.
Amongst these affairs, comes one of the largest musical events of our time. What is the event we are talking about?
The Grateful Dead with the helping hands of Phish's lead man Trey Anastasio will be closing their farewell week with THEIR LAST SHOW EVER at Chicago's Soldier Field.
The Grateful Dead, along with Phish, are one of the most inspirational bands contributing to the smoking culture we know today and to the entire glassblowing movement as a whole.
Alongside the final show of the Grateful Dead will be the Grateful Glass Gathering at MADE Glass Galley in Chicago.
The show will be featuring some of the real originators and innovators of the glassblowing movement including Jason Lee, Jerome Baker Designs, Slinger, and especially Bob Snodgrass, the father of the glassblowing movement.
To commemorate this historical event in Chicago, Jerome Baker Designs has created the Nucleus Bong; a massive Uranium glass bong that weighs 60 pounds!
Jason Harris, lead man at JBD, has stated that the uranium in this piece has sort of a metaphor for the radiating of the energy that was shared in this massive collaboration of teamwork.
Check out the video below and let us know what you think of this beautiful behemoth!
We hope to see you all at MADE Gallery for the Grateful Glass Gathering on July 2nd from 5pm to 10pm!
