thanks a lot, I have been blowing glass as a full time job since nov. of 1998. i work for myself and wholesale to retail stores across the northeast. when i first started my standard spoon took about 25-30 minutes. i've done thousands of them now and they take about 10-12 minutes. the cobalt bubbler with the 1000th show on it took about 45-55 minutes, plus time to letter and sandblast. I use a GTT torch, which is a modified table top weilding torch that runs on O2 and propane. it has a flame range between 1/4 inch wide to 2 inch wide and from 5 inches long to 18 inches long and gets hot as shit. the borosilicate glass melts at 1600 degrees and is then workable. it starts as tubes and rods. in the last ten years the art has gotten huge, new torch companies, new colors and techniques.

Just the fact that you have to say it's for tobacco only makes it sound suspicious... what if i want to smoke salvia in it?
