Pipe Classic IX

Burlington, VT - Every September, in a true celebration of pipe making, The Bern Gallery invites 12 notorious glass artists to compete head-to-head in a live competition.  Out of thousands of artists, 12 are chosen.  All pipes must be made completely from scratch in The Bern Gallery venue, where there are three glass blowing stations. Pipe must be made in 12 hours and must be functional.

We spent a couple days in Vermont documenting a few of the artists as they finished their pieces.  The competitor list for 2014, the 9th annual Pipe Classic, is as follows:

  • Alex Ubatuba
  • AKM
  • BMFT
  • Burtoni
  • Danny Camp
  • Elbo
  • Gordman
  • Herb C
  • Hoobs
  • JD Mapleson
  • Kind
  • Matt McLamb
