Hello World of Bongs Community, today we talk with Frank Waugh, a talented artist from Texas:
WHAT GOT YOU INTERESTED IN GLASS IN THE FIRST PLACE?
PBS did a special on the Plinko glass company.
WHERE DID YOU LEARN YOUR SKILLS?
A guy named Steve showed me the basics.
DO YOU CREDIT ANY OTHER GLASS BLOWERS WITH HELPING YOU ACHIEVE YOUR SUCCESS?
I accredit everyone ive met in the glass community for helping to get me to where i am.
TALK TO ME A LITTLE ABOUT YOUR STYLE.
I would say my style is more technical than creative. I really love figuring out the process . I’ve been super focused on fume for a while. Nothing gets me more excited than seeing a crazy fumed piece of glass fill in.
WHAT MATERIALS DO YOU MOST LIKE TO WORK WITH?
Gold and silver definitely.
WHAT’S THE MOST FAVOURITE PIECE YOU’VE EVER MADE?
The most expensive and beautiful piece I’ve made I think is my most recent pyramid, my favorite piece is the next one.
WHAT WAS YOUR WORST MOMENT ON THE PATH TO “MAKING IT” AS A GLASS ARTIST?
The worst moment was, as I broke 5 recyclers in the same night, all while trying to mouthpiece them. I shoulda went to bed!
AND WHAT WAS YOUR BEST MOMENT?
My proudest moment is when I was able to quit my job to focus on my glass.
WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE TO NEW GLASS ARTISTS?
Hours equals powers!
WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE STRAIN/EXTRACT, AND WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE PIECE TO DAB IT IN?
My favorite strain is Durban poison I’m a flower guy and I love smoking out of Sherlocks.
IF YOU COULD MAKE YOUR “DREAM” PIECE, WHAT WOULD IT LOOK LIKE?
My dream piece would look like a cross between a Mark Lammi piece and a Maka b piece.
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?
I would love for a fume master to want one of my fume pieces.
WHAT DOES THE FUTURE HOLD FOR GLASS ARTISTRY IN THE CANNABIS INDUSTRY?
Honestly if I knew the answer I’d be loaded. But I hope really big pieces make a comeback.
IF YOU WERE SHIPWRECKED ON A DESERT ISLAND AND YOU COULD ONLY HAVE THREE ESSENTIAL PIECES WITH YOU, WHICH WOULD YOU CHOOSE?
Seeds, fire, and glass.
WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE MUSIC TO WORK TO/DAB TO?
It changes all the time. I’ve been listening to a lot of Korean trap music lately.
