Bob Snodgrass is a legendary glassblower out of Eugene, Oregon. Bob’s styles, techniques and dedication to glass has earned him eternal respect and admiration throughout the lampworking community. Bob has been working with glass since 1971. Traveling across the country the Snodgrass family landed in Oregon in 1990. Enjoying the weather, people and atmosphere Bob and his family decided to stay and call Eugene home.
Bob experimented beyond what clear glass tubing could allow & came up with a style all his own. One of Bob’s most iconic techniques came from his creative tinkering with different materials: gold & silver fuming. Bob found when metals were sprayed into glass it caused the pipe to change color. After frequent use the residue would back the fuming to show colors not present before. Bob is credited as creating or inspiring the creation of the sidecar, the hammer, the bubbler & the modern day spoon via his potato pipe. Largely due to his ingenuity, many of the modern glassblowing tools owe their creation to Bob.
Eugene, Oregon is considered the mecca for artistic boro glass. Much of the glass scene in Eugene has been taking inspiration from Bob and his ever growing list of students and apprentices. With a large concentration of lamp workers, it is no surprise that Bob has acquired a lengthy list of apprentices throughout the years. Snodgrass apprentices include: Hugh, Cameron Tower, Bob Badtram, Brian Padilla, Travis Wigger, Bobby Snodgrass III, Brad Tenner, Yvonne Padilla, Stan Alba, Saul, Steve Stotts, kelly Chasteen, Ben Muniz, Mikie M., Chris Vela, Dave Willis, Sasha Chambers, Kelly Smith, Brad C., Nicki, Will Menzies, Ben Naiman, Joe Naiman, Virginia Snodgrass-Gietl, Jonathan Gietl, Bobby Snodgrass IV, Sierra Snodgrass, Oliver Glenn & more.
