Welcome to the San Diego Organic Wellness Association’s newly formatted website.
While we get the hang of our new site, please take a look at some information we’ve collected below about the San Diego glass art communities when compared to the growing Canadian heady glass art market. We thought it was an interesting look at the incredible work coming from both of the local markets.
Today we will take a look at the following,
Heady Glass in Canada vs. Heady Glass in San Deigo
Canadian Glass Artists
Now let’s take a look at some of the Heady Glass coming out of Canada. Which does appear to be some pretty nice work! In our example here, we will take a look at one of the new Heady Glass shops that we could find in Canada, which is The Honeypot Glass Gallery. This place we found, because of the Peanut Butter Cookies eliquid, and it seems they are selling it in Canada too. They just opened, and claim to have their cities best heady glass selection so we thought we would take a look at this Saskatoon Head Shop. They feature some cool artists like Kahuna Glass Art, take a look at this one:
That’s some pretty heady stuff!! We love that purple Scalien! A Scalien is a brand of glass, they all are unique but they also all have this same, “scalien” design and look to them. Very nice, they are available in all kinds of shapes and colors, they also have some pendants available I believe, and perhaps some other stuff like dab tools or carb caps. You’ll have to take a look around The Honeypot website to see more. If you want to see the full listing of their canadian glass artists go ahead and browse their site, they actually do have quite a few artists that show a lot of really interesting glass work!
Heady Glass in San Diego
Now for a look at what has been going on in San Diego. Below you will find a picture of a well known San Diego Glass Artist, Bill Burroughs. You can read about Bill Burroughs in High Times magazine.
Here is one of Bill’s Pieces:
As you can see from the high times article:
“He first turned on a torch in 1999 as a pipe artist at Sketchy Glass, using techniques like wrap-and-rake, along with fuming. After showing his work at his first trade show, Bill began learning other styles and patterns, like welding multiples sections, sculpting and line work.”
Here is a video of some cool glass blowing from San Diego. Really interesting work shown off in this video below:
There’s never a shortage of awesome art to be found in San Diego, or in Canada! It seems that this art is blowing up everywhere! Where should we compare to next? Send us a message to let us know what city or country you want us to take a look at in our next blog post!
