Hello World of Bongs Community, today we jump over to Disneyland, more exact to OTG Glass, a very talented artist:
WHAT GOT YOU INTERESTED IN GLASS IN THE FIRST PLACE?
My family own the glass and crystal shops at Disneyland, so i grew up in the business and always loved it!
WHERE DID YOU LEARN YOUR SKILLS?
I learned from my mom and dad. They were both talented glass blowers and glass cutters.
DO YOU CREDIT ANY OTHER GLASS BLOWER WITH HELPING YOU ACHIEVE YOUR SUCCESS?
I credit my mom and dad, they taught me how to work on the torch at 13yrs old.
TALK TO ME A LITTLE ABOUT YOUR STYLE.
My style is putting more thought into solid artwork on the tube itself. I personally like to end up with a nice piece of art and be functional.
WHAT MATERIALS DO YOU MOST LIKE TO WORK WITH?
I prefer clear glass and like to accent the piece in color rather thant make the whole piece in color. To me it brings out the artwork in my opinion.
WHAT’S THE MOST FAVOURITE OR EXPENSIVE PIECE YOU’VE EVER MADE?
The most expensive piece i´ve ever made was a large castle, sold for $12.000 but my favorite would be the Starship Enterprise, sold for $8.000.
WHAT WAS YOUR MOST EMBARRASING MOMENT ON THE PATH TO “MAKING IT” AS A GLASS ARTIST?
Most embarrasing would be working at the Disneyland Hotel, glass blowing a large ship with one holding rod, broke off the rod and shattered everywhere in front of about 200 guests at the hotel.
AND WHAT WAS YOUR BEST MOMENT?
When my father gave me a job. Glass blowing on Mainstreet Disneyland at 14.
WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE TO NEW GLASS ARTISTS?
Patience, Patience,Patience, don´t give up, you have good days and bad days! Repeat the same thing over and over, that´s how you get better.
WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE STRAIN/EXTRACT, AND WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE PIECE TO DAB IT IN?
I know this is rare but i don´t partake. I do have many friends that do and are always more then happy to test all y pieces and give me feedback on the function.
IF YOU COULD MAKE YOUR “DREAM” PIECE, WHAT WOULD IT LOOK LIKE?
Bigger and badder loopstitch castle.
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 would be Treasure Island in Las Vegas. Make a massive Pirate Ship.
WHAT DOES THE FUTURE HOLD FOR GLASS ARTISTRY IN THE CANNABIS INDUSTRY?
That´s a good question
WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE MUSIC
THANK YOU, OTG GLASS, YOU HAVE MADE SO MANY PEOPLE HAPPY WITH YOUR ART!
