Whether you have tried it or not, honey oil is a beautiful sight to behold. That golden glow, that resinous sheen. It makes you think of purity, dedication, and big fat dab hits!
In homage to the industrious dedication of oil makers, who are the honeybees of weed-kind, I dedicate these sticky glass pieces.
This week’s glass comes from artist Joe Peters, and you can see why he is so popular. One of a growing number of artist who uses colored borosilicate glass to achieve pieces that have the strength of scientific glass and some of the color and creative flexibility of hand-blown. Check out this dinosaur resurrected from the La Brea Honey Pits. He could use a prehistoric size bowl of your best bud.
If Man walked with dinosaurs, then this guy was one of their warriors. Notice his huge ear plugs, and his honey ladle spear. The depth you can see into the honeycomb piece he stands on, with its bumble bee, makes me want to stare and touch it. I love how he combined both rich, amber honey detail with cloudy honey on this guy’s head. The stem projects out the back, so he is always facing you, a clear sign of respect. You are the chief of his tribe, after all.
Yes, microscope rigs are always on my “color me impressed” list. This one does really well with the honeycomb and makes me imagine dabs so rich and thick, that they destroy the labs that test it with their super viscous drizzle. I love the bee accents too.
This piece has to be one of my all-time favorites, on so many levels. First, it makes me think of a big bottle of dark honey whiskey, another favorite treat. The swarm of bees inside around their hive is a beautiful scene, with the dark amber glass giving a surreal depth to it. The honeycomb texture sections of this piece are amazing! They drip with honey so delicious you will have the compulsion to lick your fingers!
Now if our tribal guy and dinosaur above are from the distant past, then this killer buzz-bot is the future of dabs! Armed with hive laser cannons, he will put a hit on you quick… A big dab hit that will knock your socks off. I think pieces that really come alive when you smoke out of them are a step beyond, and this piece is no exception. Smoke out the bee in this buzz-bot’s brain, to calm his deadly programming.
Writing this article on honey and glass has my gears going into overdrive craving some honey myself, and with that in mind, I leave you with this quote that certainly had me wondering if dabs have been around a lot longer than we think…
