ELBO glass is nothing like you’ve ever seen, and for a good reason – ELBO’s interest in art was borne out of a psychedelic experience he had as a teen. He began working with soft glass in 2005 while attending Tyler School of Art and Architecture in his hometown of Philadelphia. It wasn’t until after graduation that he started making pipes with borosilicate glass. In 2013, ELBO relocated to Colorado, cofounding Everdream Studio where he made his mark alongsite the industry’s best glassblowers, such as WJC, Eusheen, Adam G, and N8 Miers. ELBO is also the co-founder of Front St. Gallery in Philadelphia, PA, that connects the city’s most influential, beloved glass to their fans and collectors. In 2014 and 2015, ELBO appeared as a competitor and guest DJ during Pipe Classic 9 and Pipe Classic 10! His breathtaking homages to Champ the Lake Champlain monster and Quetzalcoatl stunned the crowds!
Inspired by Atlanta’s Trap music movement and by fellow artists, ELBO’s magnificent glass creations are colorful, fun, and more than just a little bit charismatic… in a dinosaur-with-giant-fangs sort of way. Bern Glass is proud to have ELBO glass merch for sale. We have a wide selection of his jars and grinders, and occasionally feature his glass art during the Pipe Classic! ELBO adds pure genius to pipe making, and his art will bring a smile to your lips and a great hit for your head.
