Concentrator Bubbler by Sheldon Black – EDiTor’s Piece of the Day 10.12.2012

Fans of oils or concentrate looking for a beautiful oil rig should look no further than today’s EDiTor’s Piece of the Day.

The Concentrator Bubbler made by Sheldon Black is made purely for oils and concentrates. This glass piece is a small and sleek stunner that comes with a glass dome and nail.

Smoke moves down the oil dome and nail through the stemless diffuser that contains 8 pinholes for treatment. The diffuser contains a stunning white Sheldon Black signature. Once the smoke is diffused to its optimal level it moves up the main section towards the arm that contains a 14.5mm ground female joint to connect the mouthpiece. The disc shaped mouthpiece is removable and connects to via a 14.5mm ground male joint. The mouthpiece takes the form of a thin straight glass tube with two clear glass rings in the middle. The mouthpiece leans back at the top for usability and is disc shaped for comfort.

Each of the ground joints has an SB logo reverse etched upon them adding more aesthetic pleasure to this gorgeous piece from Sheldon Black.

This Sheldon Black Concentrator is available with either a Frosted or Black Logo, both featuring a signature Bowler Hat.

Another true beauty made by the team at Sheldon Black Glass.

GingerELA Electroformed Oil Rig – EDiTor’s Piece of the Day 21.02.2012

This beautiful heady piece is made by one of the EDiTor’s favourite glass artists around. GingerELA’s story is a heart warming one. Being fed up with her first career she had a complete change of heart and decided to dedicate her life to the torch. Since then, she has caused many waves in the borosilicate glass world. And it’s no surprise.

This GingerELA Electroformed Oil Rig is a small piece with some incredible glass work all over. The oil dome fits into this piece through an 18.8mm ground joint. There is a switchback design on this dome that is done so well the colours almost stand out in a 3d manner. The switchback design is composed of two different shades of red, two different shades of orange, bright yellow and blueish green. This is set upon a white background causing a strong contrast and a fire type effect.

The bulk of the piece is electroformed throughout. Moving down the electroformed arm that houses the oil dome, smoke moves into the large chamber in the center. The main chamber resembles the base of a tree trunk and contains two different marbles on either side. The first marble is like a galaxy marble with a holographic sliver resembling an opal. The other marble has a clear marble with an embedded yellow and blue snail. At the top of the main chamber there is another remarkable fiery switchback design that is similar to the one described above.

On the mouthpiece side of this pipe, there are three domes sprouting out that resemble a mushroom. Each of these domes contains the same switchback fiery switchback designs as well. The three arms holding these domes up have coloured glass work with yellow, blue, turquoise, black and purple glass making up the design of the mushroom stems.

The tallest and largest of these mushrooms is the mouthpiece with a hole on the side for inhalation. This is one of the EDiTor’s favourite pieces. He can only hope that the proud owner cherishes it.
