Takeo Glass

Biography

Takeo began his journey into the world of “Heady” borosilicate glass in 2014. A cornerstone of the psychedelic counter-culture during the 60’s and 70’s in America, the borosilicate glass art industry began establishing its presence when glass artists explored new methods of combining their art and with function. An avid cannabis connoisseur with passion for collecting and appreciating heady glass, Takeo found himself collecting and amassing a notable personal collection throughout the years. Being a connoisseur and collector eventually led Takeo down the path of wanting to learn how to become a pipe maker himself.

Turning dreams into reality, Takeo built a small shack like studio in the driveway of his residence and began his life journey as a borosilicate artist. In his early years, Takeo taught himself the basics of borosilicate glass blowing and produced works that explored the industries most complex standardized functional designs. Examples of these industry standard designs includes the “Klein”, “Straight Fab”, “Torus”, and “Egg”. Takeo in his early years also found himself frequently collaborating with another up and coming local glassblower within the industry, @Royscoglass. The two artists previously hosted an exhibition show with a third artist @Thousanddollarsmoke, titled “Thousand Dollar Takeo De Roysco” in 2017 through Old World New Art. The exhibition featured both solo and collaborative works of both artists that highlighted the functional precision of Takeo, as well as the sculptural realistically of Roysco. Over time the artist naturally had outgrown his initial working space and was able to build out a second glass blowing studio within the confines of his home studio.

A self taught borosilicate artisan, Takeo has developed a highly refined skill set. His skills highlight and capitalize on the precision and complexity required to produce quality works of heady art. Over time the artist has independently developed a noteworthy reputation and collector following within the cannabis and borosilicate glass industries. Striving for uniqueness of design and artistic individuality, Takeo strives to create works that impact both the collector and industry by setting new standards that will stand the test of time. With the connoisseur and collector in mind, Takeo emphasizes critical consideration for his works function and form. His original works are highly regarded for their flawless and precision qualities despite being hand spun with the congruent presence of exceptional function.
