Oak

Hello World of Bongs Community, today we are together with Oak from the Locoboro Gallery and he tells a bit about his live as artist:

WHAT GOT YOU INTERESTED IN GLASS IN THE FIRST PLACE?
Back in the mid 1990’s in California i remember a friend bringing back a color changing dry spoon from a greatful dead concert and that was it for me i knew i wanted to melt glass.
 
WHERE DID YOU LEARN YOUR SKILLS AND DO YOU CREDIT ANY OTHER GLASS BLOWER WITH HELPING YOU ACHIEVE YOUR SUCCESS?

After a long search and the right timing i met Galen Sawatzky “Goolenglass” in 2008 and from then i was able to slowly get into glassblowing. So the first 4 years there wasnt much time and opportunity to blow glass then gradually i was able to spend more and more time till 1 year ago i made glassblowing a full time gig.

 
TALK TO ME A LITTLE ABOUT YOUR STYLE.

My style has developed by being inspired from things in nature that i put my twist on. I like to make things that attract people’s attention and suprise them as they learn of its function

 
WHAT MATERIALS DO YOU MOST LIKE TO WORK WITH?
I like to work with stricking color glass and translucents the mix brings a natural look over all to my pieces while reminding the viewer that its glass
 
WHAT’S THE MOST FAVOURITE PIECE YOU’VE EVER MADE?
The current piece im working on. The pieces seem to become my favorite as i make them. Current piece is a fish eating a smaller fish made into a water tube
 
 
WHAT WAS YOUR WORST MOMENT ON THE PATH TO “MAKING IT” AS A GLASS ARTIST?

I guess im blessed i consider all my experiences with glass good and an occasion to learn to be better

 

AND WHAT WAS YOUR PROUDEST MOMENT?

To be recognized by some of glass blowings top artist

 
WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE TO NEW GLASS ARTISTS?

Dont be rushed!

 
WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE STRAIN/EXTRACT, AND WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE PIECE TO DAB IT IN?
My favorite strain is Cheesecake atm and i enjoy using a double bubbler with a dewar push bowl the most
 
IF YOU COULD MAKE YOUR “DREAM” PIECE, WHAT WOULD IT LOOK LIKE?
I live my life one dream at a time and its a fish eating a smaller fish tube.
 
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?
It would be funny to have ghostface from wu-tang wear one of my chains with a fish pendy on it
 
WHAT DOES THE FUTURE HOLD FOR GLASS ARTISTRY IN THE CANNABIS INDUSTRY?
Kinetic function
 
IF YOU WERE SHIPWRECKED ON A DESERT ISLAND AND YOU COULD ONLY HAVE THREE ESSENTIAL PIECES WITH YOU, WHICH WOULD YOU CHOOSE?
A magnifying glass, a spoon, and a bubbler
 
WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE MUSIC TO WORK TO/DAB TO?
