After the Party Is Over…
Last week, our Smoke Shop in St. Petersburg, Florida was privileged to host Nathan Miers, “N8” for “N8’s Ghostly Galaxies”. What an amazing event and what an impressive collection of custom glass pipes , spoons, sherlocks and marbles! The VIP’s that kicked off the party came from all over, some even flying in to attend and have the opportunity to purchase an original custom glass pipe and other glass pieces created by Nathan just for the event. What was immediately evident is how much these collectors mean to Nathan and how much they respect him and his work. Long known for his “Space” work, Nathan created beautiful atom smashers, minitubes, collabs with both Harold Cooney and Darby Holm, marbles and glass pendants. Nathan loves to spend time with his devoted collectors and that was evident by the excitement, laughter and story-telling. Buying a custom glass pipe, handmade pipe or any accessory is enhanced when you can hear the backstory of how the piece was created, and what the inspiration was for the artist. Watching the artist sign your tobacco pipe or pelican just adds value to an already incredible experience.
Fourward Glass Gallery and Smoke Shop takes great pride in our customer service and these “Meet and Greets” with glass artists showcase how we are able to enhance the buying experience. Every VIP received “swag” from both N8 and Fourward Glass that included shirts, event and N8’s mood mats, a hat, sticker kits, signed event poster, a beautiful book featuring some of N8’s work,
$100 toward an event purchase and a custom carry bag. Appetizers, desserts, beer, wine and soda was also offered to both the VIPs and then to the General Public once the VIP party was over.
