Episode 141- Jakey Marten aka Blitzkriega 

 

     Born in a beach town, culture has always been my primary form of expression- From surfing to music to art to celebrating life and success with my family- Ive consistently expressed my ideas thru media of culture itself- I received my Crafts degree from the Virginia Commonwealth University School of Fine Arts with a concentration in glass- There I discovered how to utilize glass as a media to further express how art and culture are one- I feel like American culture has become themed around the artistic remix; or more formally the idea of amalgamation. In my journey to discover the perfect "mix" I've searched for and attempted to create images that universally appeal to everyone.   Check him out on Instagram @blitzkriega

CORRECTION!!   The 35% off sale does not include Illuminati, Lucy or Wonderbars... I misspoke and said they were included.  Sorry for the confusion Scott Tribble was born August 10th, 1980 in Kirkland, WA.  He has had a love for sculpting as far back as he can remember.  In High School it was clay and painting, as those were the mediums available.  When he was 19 he discovered glass blowing where his passion began to consume him and he fell into his niche.  He has experimented in many styles but his heart is in sculpting.  

“Scoz” is best known for his dragons, which have won numerous awards including High Times Cannabis Cup “Best Glass” three times.  Scoz Dragons have also been featured in Dope Magazine, NW Leaf, and on Billboards in the Seattle, Washington area.

Episode 139- Matty Phunk: Glass Artist and Engineer #boroadvocate #innovator 

     In this episode Matty @torontoflameworking and @jmichaelglass get deep into the talking about Marty's background, glass Journey and inspriration behind #TheArrow.  A New, Soon-to-be-Released Torch from Nortel which has been In development for the last 2-yrs, Nortel is pushing the design and innovation for their newest creation.  With a New "Re-Mix" Flame Chemistry this torch is going to change the game.

I can't wait to get my hands on one!!!!! Hope you enjoy and Please share with you friends and spread the amazing things going on in the glass community!!!!!! 

 
 
     Matty Pike (Phunk) was born Sept 5, 1989  in Toronto, Ontario and has lived there for most of his life, with a year on the east coast of Canada and a year on the West Coast. He graduated from Ryerson University for Entrepreneurship and started up the Toronto Flameworking Studio shortly after He finished their program.  
    
     He started out collecting glass in about 2006 on internet forums and got his first opportunity to try melting in 2009. He had a lot of off/on time between working in a few different home studios while finishing school and decided to open the TFT studio to provide an opportunity for others to learn an practice in a reliable shop.
 
      While operating the TFT studio He has been fortunate enough to work closely with Nortel to design and build a new style of burner as well as creating an upgrade for some of their traditional burners. The new Nortel-TFT Arrow has been in development for the better part of 2 years and with a great deal of R&D it is by far their most complex burner. By combining the use of both surface mix as well as premix the Arrow is able to create a very unique "Remix" style flame chemistry.
