Re: glasspipes.org and glassaritsts.org will be shutting down soon

i will say. the days that i don’t torch, but want to, i’d go to glasspipes/glassartists.org and browse. never failed to stoke the fires of inspiration.
i guess now i’ll have to make do with youtube and facebook

oh wait. we have this site! it’s too bad the files/pics could not be “backed up” or archived here or something.

Re: glasspipes.org and glassaritsts.org will be shutting down soon

I have spent countless hours browsing art on those sites. It’s how I found out there was a glass blowing community. Definitely sad to see them go. I will never forget how excited I was the first time I made something nice enough to be featured.

Re: glasspipes.org and glassaritsts.org will be shutting down soon

sad. i heard about this yesterday and it was a bummer.

Misha, some of your early work blew my mind. I would troll that place and /fartpipes for hours when i was locked behind a security desk.

Re: glasspipes.org and glassaritsts.org will be shutting down soon

Yeah. I can’t believe there was a time when I was on glassartists top 20, now that I have deleted that old work, I am not even near the top 100! oh well .. Things come and go. The end to a victorious past.

Justin is still trying to find a way to archive the sites somehow. I don’t want to get into tech details, but if everyone can send good intentions out to make that happen that would be helpful.

Re: glasspipes.org and glassaritsts.org will be shutting down soon

we held the number one spot for a good two three years on gp.org. Sites like gp and ga and this one is why everyone in our community know each other now in the present .. 15 years ago non of us knew each other.. It’s sad that big named social media has drowned out such great communities.

Re: glasspipes.org and glassaritsts.org will be shutting down soon

Sad to hear, can’t say I ever posted stuff there, but I spent many hours looking. in fact, it was one of the first places I went when I got back on the torch a couple years ago, it was pretty dead even then, so I understand why its closing. but still sad.

I hope everyone who’s excited about this starts posting on the galleries so we don’t have a repeat of this down the line. I made some pipes this week so I’m going to be posting them up soon!

Pictures on there are epic and should be curated. Most of the “heady” glass currently is nothing compared to what starving pipemakers where making a few years ago. The Bearclaw stuff alone is an amazing body of work and now Ryan (Bearclaw) has a significantly debilitating hand injury on top of lifes struggles. blah blah blah blah go to glasspipes.org, and see for yourself. Instagram doesnt even compare to the value of that site. Daniel Trilli R.I.P. !

There isn’t long to register a new account if you aren’t already a member. April 1st is the deadline.

Hey glass family! The end of an era is upon us, and sadly glasspipes.org and glassaritsts.org will be shutting down soon (as well as all the bigreef.org sites). Most likely the end of this month. If you have pics stored there that you don’t have backed up, go save them! And if you have links in your galleries in your sigs, like I do, might want to change them. J, thank you for 15 years of free hosting, personal url’s, and a killer spot to send people to view our glass. You helped our
