Artist: DB Parker Fine Art

Hello World of Bongs Community, we got time to talk with Danny Parker (DB Parker Fine Art) about his wonderful work: 

 

WHAT GOT YOU INTERESTED IN GLASS IN THE FIRST PLACE?

 Got to go into a headshop when I was 17 and got a wrap and rake spoon that absolutely blew my mind. That was in early 1998.

 

WHERE DID YOU LEARN YOUR SKILLS?

Most of my skills were self taught. I learned how to make one hitters from the guy who made my first glass spoon. Got to meet him in November of 98 and was blowing glass by December.

 

DO YOU CREDIT ANY OTHER GLASS BLOWERS WITH HELPING YOU ACHIEVE YOUR SUCCESS?

I can attribute most of my current lathe working skills to Brandon Clark. He showed me white a few things when I started taking the lathe work serious. Check him out! Now I have in shop influences in coltglassstudio, forever grateful glass, and florin glass. All of them push me to be better.

 

TALK TO ME A LITTLE ABOUT YOUR STYLE.

Most of my inspiration comes from striving to be different and original. I love glass and the people in it and never want to copy any other artists work. For instance I have come up with my own versions of sherlocks I dubbed “lathelocks”. They’re my take on the classic sherlock only made mostly on the lathe. I also have my version of the traditional hammer that bronxglass dubbed “gavels”. Not sure what my next one will be so stay tuned.

 

WHAT MATERIALS DO YOU MOST LIKE TO WORK WITH?

I’ve really been digging Greasy glass color as of late as well as northstar. Both always have the best bang for your buck.

 

WHAT’S THE MOST FAVOURITE PIECE YOU’VE EVER MADE?

To date I have a couple pieces that are my favorites. One is my Simpson’s collabs from the early 2000s. The most recent favorite would be the bike I made for the tournament of fire.

 
WHAT WAS YOUR WORST MOMENT ON THE PATH TO “MAKING IT” AS A GLASS ARTIST?

I’d say breaking a fully done, full worked fab egg in the final stage of the build. Not just breaking it but smashing it on the floor as it fell outta my tongs. 

 

AND WHAT WAS YOUR MOST FAVORITE MOMENT?

My most recent favorite moment would be sweeping the 1st round of the tournament. Next being when I bought my lathe.

 

WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE TO NEW GLASS ARTISTS?

Best advice I could give is put in your time behind the torch. You will only get better with time. Stay humble, be respectful, have integrity and run your business ethically.

 

WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE TO NEW GLASS ARTISTS?

I like flower when I smoke. Cherry bomb is always a good one

 

IF YOU COULD MAKE YOUR “DREAM” PIECE, WHAT WOULD IT LOOK LIKE?

A full size color motorcycle you could ride!

 

WHO WOULD YOU LIKE, MOST OF ALL IN THIS WORLD, TO HIT YOU UP FOR A PIECE, AND WHAT PIECE WOULD YOU MAKE FOR HIM/HER?

That’s a tough one but it’d be cool if Joe Rogan hit me up.

 

WHAT DOES THE FUTURE HOLD FOR GLASS ARTISTRY IN THE CANNABIS INDUSTRY?

I’m not sure about innovation but I feel like it’ll be something to do with how we ingest rosin. Tough one and I wish I had the answer! 

 

IF YOU WERE SHIPWRECKED ON A DESERT ISLAND AND YOU COULD ONLY HAVE THREE ESSENTIAL PIECES WITH YOU, WHICH WOULD YOU CHOOSE, AND WHY?

I’d need canna seeds to help keep me sane. flint to start fires and a hatchet to build my house.

 

WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE MUSIC TO WORK TO/DAB TO?

Depends on my mood. Hip hop and funk are always good but I really gotta have metal in my life. Pantera, Lamb of God, H.E.D PE, ect.
