There are many artists out there who dabble in glass art, but none who have had such an impact of the medium as Jerome Baker Designs has had. Jerome Baker Designs, otherwise known as JBD, has been around since the American pipe movement really got going. They quickly made a name for themselves by creating glass bongs much more unique and beautiful than anyone had ever seen.
The Glass Company, Jerome Baker Designs, was started by two men, Jason Harris and Saeed Mothadi. Over the years, they’ve worked hard to bring attention to glass art and have forged a demand for glass that is now a multi-million dollar industry that has thousands of glassblowers working within it. Now that’s success!
Fostering the growth of the industry
Back when Jerome Baker Designs first started off back in 1991, they weren’t very big. They were only employing about 70 glassblowers to create their functional glass. With the advancements in shipping glass, Jerome Baker Design’s has been able to begin shipping their unique creations through the internet to customers all over the place. This has allowed them to create a new market for glass with people that wouldn’t have otherwise been interested.
Unfortunately, all good things experience a few bumps in the road, and Jerome Baker Designs was no exemption. In 2003, the company was shut down by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency for selling paraphernalia. Understandably, those working for Jason Baker Designs didn’t really know what to expect in terms of the future of the business and that future of the glass culture they had created.
Glass culture lives on
Fortunately, the glass culture is still alive and kicking, and even Jerome Baker Designs’ glass creations can be found for sale on the internet at websites like LegalSmokeShop.com; an online head shop that sells pipes, water pipes, vaporizers, and more. It also sells a number of different Jerome Baker products. The top seller, which is making real waves at the moment, is the Jerome Baker Crisis Robot oil rig piece.
So if you’re in the market for a unique glass piece for your home or recreational activities, check out Jerome Baker Designs. They’re sure to have that little something special that you’re looking for.
