Jerome Baker Designs Launches Into Crypto Space

Pretty soon you can be the proud owner of unique digital assets with corresponding legendary glass art. Jerome Baker Designs (JBD), purveyors of award-winning unique functional glass art, will create unique digital art pieces and corresponding physical assets on the Ethereum blockchain for a collaboration with FDCTech, Inc.

FDC (OTCQB: FDCT) will provide the Non-Fungible Token (NFT) platform to mint and issue NFTs. Collectors can purchase Jerome Baker Designs drops through online silent auctions, global offers and open editions. The platform is expected to be operational in the early part of the first quarter, ending on March 31, 2022. 

Founder and President of Jerome Baker Designs Jason Harris—the artist behind unique and rare luxury pieces including bongs, bubblers and pipes—will develop original physical and digital works for the project. Harris explained his pivot into crypto and the reasoning behind it. 

“The blockchain industry has already changed the world with Bitcoin alone, which I have been accepting since 2016 for bubblers and bongs,” Harris told High Times. “At JBD, we have been exploring NFTs since before the term NFTs existed. We were exploring, along with many other companies, using non-fungible token technology towards supply chain.”

Original Jerome Baker Designs pieces have been customized for global artists including Santana, Snoop Dogg, George Clooney, George Clinton, 311, Sublime/Skunk Records, Widespread Panic, Grateful Dead, Rita Marley, DMB, Phish, Slayer and DRI.

“As an artist, I couldn’t be more stoked to see this technology applied towards arts,” Baker explained. “The creative world has just been transformed and artists will be more empowered than ever to take control of their art and their lives. We are working now on initiatives with an eye towards leading the way in the NFT universe in general with one-of-kind pieces pegged to an NFT. That is where we think this leads: to the new phygital realm, where the physical and digital meet.”

“We are thrilled that Jerome Baker Designs has entered the NFT space with FDC. It is exciting to work with such a well-established iconic brand that has made modern artistic glass and pipe-making a highly desirable collectible art collection,” FDC Founder, CFO and NFT Team Leader Imran Firoz said. “Our Company and Jerome Baker Designs are committed to creating authentic digital and physical art pieces to showcase Jason Harris’ unique and rare work on the NFT platform, where collectors can seamlessly buy, sell, and store digital art and collectibles.”

Jerome Baker Designs

Jerome Baker Designs launched after founder Jason Harris apprenticed under Bob Snodgrass, “Godfather of artistic hard glass” and founder of the modern pipe-making industry. Snodgrass had been peddling colorful glass pipes at Grateful Dead shows across the country—significantly contributing to the popularity of glass in the world of cannabis.

Harris followed in the footsteps of Snodgrass, mastering the fine art of glassblowing.

An early concept behind the project.

Jerome Baker Designs was recently named one of the top ten glassblowers in the United States by the Cannabis News Update. Jerome Baker Designs won the 2018 High Times Cannabis Cup for “Best Glass” in Sonoma County and was runner-up in “Best Glass” in the Sacramento 2018 High Times Cannabis Cup. 

In September 2020, JBD and Jason Harris were featured in the High Times Annual Art issue alongside Tommy Chong and Shea McAdams of seedleSs clothing. In 2003, Harris was one of about 50 people who were busted by federal agents during the George W. Bush administration amid Operation Pipe Dreams. It demonstrated that even glass pipe sellers aren’t protected from facing criminal charges.

“We, at JBD, passionately believe in the future of a blockchain-crypto-driven digital art world and the ultimate democratization and distribution of authentic and protected digital assets. We’re excited to collaborate with FDC as they have a proven track record in building successful customized trading technology,” said Harris.

Glass Pipe Holiday Gift Guide

Over the years, glass artists and vendors alike risked their own freedom to bring glass pipes to the market. You might be bombarded with the classic tongue-in-cheek line, “For Tobacco Use Only” if you enter a headshop, but restrictions are being relaxed or ignored for the most part in recent years.

Glass pipes grew in popularity for decades as smokers turned to pipe materials with less thermal conductivity to save fingers from burns—namely glass. Today, glass pipes are approaching the finest art you will ever encounter. Often, glass pipes will be auctioned as fine art, and likewise displayed in a gallery.

Generally speaking—here are the different types of glass pipes: chillums, spoons, Sherlocks, hammers, bubblers, water pipes (bongs) and steamrollers. For concentrates, you’ll find dab rigs, elbows, nails, diffusers, percs and so on. Each category has different arguable advantages and disadvantages. For instance, some prefer ice pinches, while others prefer diffusion. High Times breaks down the glass smoking utensils you need to know about this holiday season.

Bob Snodgrass, the godfather of the bong renaissance, briefly explained

Glass is a staple cannabis consumption material, and pipes were once made of naturally derived materials. But then, Bob Snodgrass, while famously traveling on tour with the Grateful Dead, laid bare his talents and began designing innovative cannabis glassware that eventually had a hand in shaping an entire industry. Of all the renowned glass artists, Bob Snodgrass is held in the highest esteem.

Today, Bob Snodgrass and his family carry on a tradition that he cultivated from a love of cannabis and his incredible talent for glass sculpting. He currently counts at least five of his family members as official glass artist apprentices, and regularly teaches hands-on instruction. 

The method that created the Snodgrass Family Glass movement was invented by him, which according to the Snodgrass website, is a technique he refers to as  “Scientific Glassmaking.” 

Glass art is not new, Venetian glass makers have been doing their thing for aeons, but the specific inventions of Bob Snodgrass changed the art form forever. By mixing metals and lab-grade glass, Snodgrass created uncommon effects that fueled an entire subculture of art. Iridescence, gold sheens and intricate abstractions were all fueled by chemical reactions — not by simply adding colors or painting surfaces. 

When glass and talent collide

Snodgrass is seen as the father of borosilicate, aka ‘hard glass’ pipes and smokeware. He’s also notable as “the godfather of the bong renaissance.” In 2017, Northwest-centric publication The Stranger said in a deep dive on glass sculpture that Snodgrass’ decision to settle in Oregon directly led to his continued influence in the craft. Had he stayed in Ohio where he originated, they muse that the glass movement would have flourished in the Midwest instead. 

His glassware is often UV reactive, innovative in its function as well as its form, and the basic ‘spoon’ shaped glass pipe you can get at many corner stores come from his experiments.

The popularity of his glassware is fully based on its artistic appeal and the weight of the wisdom that Snodgrass bestowed upon this folk art. Glass pipes are now ubiquitous, and there are even specially invented tools based off of Snodgrass’ techniques.

He says of his passion for innovation, “I am an inventor. I got stuck in glassblowing because there are so many things to invent in it. I invented a new field in glass.”

If you’re looking to purchase Snodgrass glass, you can shop online but that is just one outlet. Snodgrass pieces are so popular and renowned that they sell for thousands at auctions and in galleries in downtown New York City. Generations of glassblowers to come owe their six figure pipe sales to this man, The Godfather of Pipes.

Spring Cleaning Your Smoking Paraphernalia

Spring is a good time to declutter, organize and prioritize, so adding your cannabis paraphernalia to the list of things to freshen up is a good idea — especially if it’s been awhile since you’ve cleaned your pieces. If you use accessories to smoke your cannabis, they need to be sanitized on a regular basis. Just like washing your clothes or cleaning your makeup brushes, it’s important to keep things in tip-top shape to promote the equipment’s longevity. It not only helps you maintain the quality of your piece, but a clean smoking accessory ensures that you get a nice tasting hit with the best flavor each and every time.

Whether you are into bong rips, vaping, dabbing or taking it easy with a pipe, check out these tips on how to keep your smoking paraphernalia clean.

Vapes

The good news is that it only takes a few minutes to clean a vape, whether it’s for dry flowers, oil or concentrate. Start by unscrewing the chamber from the device and using a cotton swab remove any debris or residue by gently wiping inside of it. If the mouthpiece is clogged, run it under warm water. Finish the process by using a damp (not soaking wet) cloth or baby wipe to clean the outside of your vape before putting it back together.

Bongs

You can take care of a gunk-filled, funky bong with just a couple ingredients and some elbow grease. You’ll just need some salt, rubbing alcohol and a few minutes to shake your bong up like a maraca. First, take your bong apart, pour out the dirty water and rinse thoroughly rinse it out with fresh, warm water. Next, add a handful of salt to the empty bong, pour in some alcohol, plug the stem with a cotton ball and cover the tube with a washcloth or your hand and proceed to shake, shake, shake until your bong looks brand new. If your bong has a lot of sticky resin stuck to it, you will need to repeat the process until it’s as clean as you desire, or use a cleaning product intended for glass cleaning.

Pipes

Cleaning a pipe is just about the same process of cleaning a bong but you will need a sandwich bag with a ziplock closure to really get the job done. Give your pipe a good rinse with very warm to hot water, then place it in a sandwich bag. Add a handful of salt, pour in some alcohol, securely close the sandwich bag and shake it vigorously until your pipe looks nice and clear. If it doesn’t work the first round, you may need to do it again or you can use a paperclip to manually remove any stubborn resin. Afterwards, rinse the pipe again to let it dry before using.

Grinders

Grab a paper plate, a toothpick, rubbing alcohol and a cotton swab before starting this cleaning process. Open up your grinder and give it a good tap together to get out any big pieces of debris. Next, use the toothpick to remove any kief and collect it on the paper plate so that you can save it for later. You can use a cotton swab soaked in rubbing alcohol to wipe out the grinder, but if it is really gunked up, you may need to soak it in rubbing alcohol. Afterwards, rinse it well with warm water, place it on a towel and let it dry completely before using it again.

Dab Rig Nail

You can choose to scrape a rig nail or wash it, depending on the amount of time you have and how dirty it is. Scraping is a good choice if you have a small, minor job and can be easily and quickly done with a paper clip or any other sharp object. If you have lots of buildup, you can use rubbing alcohol to wash the nail with a cotton swab or soak it in the liquid for a few minutes and then clean with a cotton swab.

More importantly, these products are exempt from the technological issues futuristic smoking accessories like vapes and electronic rigs frequently experience.
