"Degenerate Art" is a true document of the art and culture of glass pipe-making. It is the first film to ever bring to light this invisible sub-culture in a comprehensive and well informed format. The film itself tells the story of the movement through the voices of the pipe makers themselves and the industry that surrounds them. "Degenerate Art" tells the story of glass pipe-making from Bob Snodgrass and the origins of the "color-changing" pipe, to the radical emerging art movement it has become today. Despite federal laws and events like Operation Pipe dreams, pipe makers are pioneering not only new techniques in working glass, but have also created a whole new genre of American folk art. Between raw materials and glass working tools, and consumer demand for glass pipes, a huge multi-million dollar industry has formed around this taboo culture.

Very Good!!!
22 January 2013 | by snowlife8812See all my reviews

This documentary is a very well put together calibration of the history and evolution of blowing glass pieces.

It's very dynamic and explains how the different techniques and styles evolved.

To me it's a very highly recommended film that will show you some amazing art/bongs.

Art is everything though, right? So bongs/pipes MUST be ART! Have a great 420 and take a nice bong hit for myself, as I will for you!

I would give this movie a definite watch, if not own... So go buy it!

It appeals not only to bud smokers but also to artists! Or glass-makers that want to improve their scope/talent!
