Someone from here mentioned this group and thought you guys might like these! They're vintage pieces I converted over to "highly" functional pieces. 😉 I make and sell these and it's been a real treat to do!

These are dope. I can imagine you cutting one and posting it just to have someone comment “do you know you just made a $2m vintage vase into a pipe?!”
Ha ha ha ha. Welp, if I did. I would just keep it for myself! Lol
wow! please message me id love to talk numbers
This is great! Are you just using a straight drill to carve the hole for the rig or dremmel?
Thank you! I have a plug in Porter Cable (I'm assuming it's the same as a Dremel) that I use with a diamond tipped drill bit. I've got a video on my profile of me drilling this piece if you wanna see it!
These are gorgeous!
Thank you! They're super fun to make!
Do you have an online store?
Yes! I sell them on my Instagram shop: birdandmouseglass
Would love to see you over on that side!
I love how they look and the orange one is my fave! Very nice!
Thanks! A customer had asked for an orange piece and then I saw the carnival glass and it was game over. Ha ha. I'm hopin to find more pieces like it!
Definitely a great find! I hope you find more too!
I sell them on Instagram!
My shop name is birdandmouseglass
A few of these have sold already, but you can go through my page to see what's all I've done. Or through my "available" highlights to find out exactly what I have for sale still.
Was not expecting these to be remotely affordable, am pleasantly surprised. Definitely gonna scoop one soon.
Thank you! Part of me making them was because I saw other people doing it, but couldn't afford any of their stuff! So, I wanted to make pieces for myself and others to enjoy!
Beautiful ideology, the world could use more of that.
Thank you! I appreciate that!
What this guy said.
Thank you!! I really appreciate that! And I can't wait to get a piece to you one day!
Some vintage glass collector is going to be so pissed lol
Ha ha. It's funny you say that, because i get a lot of these from my local antique store. And this weekend I finally told them what I ACTUALLY do with these. I was so scared they were going to be like, "no, not with our stuff." But they were SO cool about it! Asked me what shapes are best and said they would start setting things aside for me!
I have a vintage canadian whiskey bottle in blue glass that could use this treatment. drop a link?
I do all my stuff through my Instagram page:
It's easier to do pics and stuff on there then here since we can't send pics via messenger on Reddit.
ill check you out over there! cheers
I see you have a lot of pieces , just curious for you avg price for a a good piece? I don’t have the gram and it lets me look for 30 seconds.
Most of my water pieces range from $60-$150 the more expensive ones are rare bottles or sets that include a water piece, accessory (ash tray, rolling tray, stash jar, etc) and a dry pipe.
I've been trying to make more pieces that are in the $60-$90 range lately so they're more affordable.
Does that green one glow under UV? I have a smaller one in a slightly bright shade that does :)!
Ooooh. I don't know! I didn't think it would, but I'll have to check now! I DO have a piece I just bought online that is vaseline glass that I'll be converting. But I haven't decided if I'm selling it, or being selfish with it. Ha.
Omg. They’re all beautiful!! You are super talented!
Thank you! The bottles make it easy by being so pretty to begin with! Ha.
What's your method? Dremel or something different?
I use a porter cable with a chord so that I don't have to worry about my battery dying on me.
Here's a video if you wanna see how I drill it!
Brilliant! Thank you!
