On this page we will be reviewing all the glass artists and studios we have done business with. Think of it as the BBB (Better Business Bureau) page for the glass community. The point of this page is to inform the public about the business practices of glass artists and studios, good and bad. If you are a reputable shop and would like to submit a review, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org - Make sure to include proof (screenshots of conversations) or your review will not be posted. NO LIBEL, facts only!
AFM GLASS - 5/5 stars
We have been working with AFM Glass for a few years now. Any problems we have (missing items or broken on receipts) are always taken care of promptly. They always include a couple treats in their orders too, which is nice touch. Great service!
ANDY G Glass - 5/5 stars
Andy always handles business in a timely manner. Good communication. We asked for something he didn't necessarily make on the regular and he accommodated no problem. Always a super smooth transaction.
AARON B Glass - 5/5 stars
Excellent service. Never any problems. Doesn't ask for a deposit until he is ready to start our order and delivers in a timely manner. Accommodates special design requests.
AQUARIUST Glass - 5/5 stars
We haven't done a lot of business, but the one transaction we had was very smooth. Very long wait times, but he is only one person and doesn't require a deposit/payment until he is working on your order. Amazing glass artwork. One of our personal favorite artists here at The Dab Lab.
ASHME Glass - 5/5 stars
High quality scientific glass for fair prices. Hard to get an order, but only because he is so busy. We were only able to obtain one order, but the transaction was very smooth. Did not require a deposit until he was ready to start the order.
ATISCHLER Glass - 5/5 stars
Quick turnarounds. Good communication.
AUGY Glass - 5/5 stars
He didn't request a deposit until he was ready to start our order. Quick responses to messages. We received a piece with a crack, we sent it back, and he replaced it. Good service.
BABEDRIENNE Glass - 5/5 stars
She worked with us on a payment method she doesn't normally take. Required a deposit, but knocked out our order rather quickly so we didn't have to wait long. We loved her work so much we took a piece from the order for our personal collection!
BABY GORILLA Glass - 5/5 stars
Really long wait times, but doesn't require a deposit until he is ready to start the order and his work is immaculate so well worth the wait! Super nice guy and great communication.
BARD Glass - 5/5 stars
We have been working with Michael for well over 8 years now. He deserves 10 out of 5 stars. He is probably our favorite artist to work with. Every transaction is super smooth. One of the nicest human beings we've had the pleasure of working with. You rock Michael!
BEAR Quartz aka GREEN BEAR Glass - 5/5 stars
When we first started working with Green Bear, we had some hiccups. But after some communication they adjusted to our needs and everything has been super smooth since then. Unlike some importers, their glass always comes in super clean. Their quality control is very good. Rarely any issues upon receipt.
BILLZ BORO - 4.5/5 stars
Good communication. Pretty quick turn around after deposit was submitted. We did receive some items broken, but he replaced the broken items in a timely manner. I do feel the first package could have been packed more securely to prevent damage, this is the only reason for the half star dock. Other than that we were really happy with his service.
BLACK SHEEP aka ENCORE Glass - 5/5 stars
We work with BSG a lot. The orders are pretty large so there are bound so be issues. Anytime we receive something damaged or missing, they credit or replace promptly.
BLOB BLOB STUDIO Glass - 5/5 stars
Only placed a couple orders so far, but he has a super fast turnaround. Good communication. No complaints.
BLU SUN Glass - 5/5 stars
John is a great guy, he is family so we are a little biased! But he does business legit. We had a piece randomly crack on us and he repaired it no questions asked. We also own 3 of his Wook pendants that we truly adore.
BOB BADTRAM Glass - 5/5 stars
We only placed one order with Bob so far, but the transaction was very smooth. Quick turnaround and will work with you on custom designs.
BONELORD Glass - 5/5 stars
Doesn't collect a deposit until he is ready to start the order. Very quick turn around after the deposit was submitted. Great communication and always reposts our stories on IG! Solid dude who does amazing fume work.
BORO CAT Glass - 2/5 stars
This order was rough. Submitted our deposit on 1/23/21. Claimed to have shipped the order 5/22/21, which is a pretty long wait after a deposit for 6 pipes! After ghosting us for 3 weeks, he finally sent us tracking, but the package never scanned in. On 7/6/21 he said he never heard back from USPS after trying to track it down and said he would work on replacements. On 7/30/21 he gave me another tracking number that showed it was not scanned in again. On 8/11/21 he claimed it was "in the mail last night" but tracking did not reflect that until 8/17/21. We received the package on 8/20/21 and it was missing 2 of the 6 pipes! We requested a refund for those 2 pipes which we did not receive until 9/2/21. Tons of excuses and horrible communication throughout the transaction. The only reason he did not get a 1 star rating is because he did eventually get us the pipes and refund for missing items.
BRADLEY MILLER Glass - 5/5 stars
We've placed quite a few orders with Bradley. Every transaction is super smooth! Sometimes he gets backed up with orders and turnaround can take awhile, but always good communication! Any problems with orders (broken or missing) always get taken care of.
BRUCE WAYNE Glass - 5/5 stars
We have been working with Bruce for many years. We have been able to see his progress as a glassblower throughout the years and boy has he gotten good! Such a nice guy too. I rarely get on the phone, but Bruce has called me a couple times and we end up talking for quite awhile. Great communication. He is super busy so we don't see orders often, but always worth the wait.
BURTONI Glass - 5/5 stars
We have only bought glass a couple times from Burtoni at shows like Glass Vegas. But we have always been happy with his workmanship and attitude. Super chill down to earth guy. He isn't super active on social media so responses can be delayed, but I had some questions regarding colors used for some pieces we picked up at a show and he got back to me pretty quickly.
CAL SMITH Glass - 5/5 stars
Great communication. Will work with you on customs. We asked for smaller pendants than his normal size and he delivered. Always includes extra for decent sized orders. Doesn't collect a deposit until he is ready to start the order and the turn around is pretty quick after that.
CAPE Glass - 5/5 stars
Never requires us to place a deposit. Fast replies and always takes care of anything received broken.
CAP'N CRUNK Glass - 5/5 stars
We have been working with Devin for a LONG time now. Super long wait times because he is a VERY popular artist, but always worth the wait. Doesn't require a deposit until he is ready to start our order. Great communication and stand up guy.
CAT JIVE Glass - 5/5 stars
Worked with us on a payment method he doesn't normally take. He didn't even have it set up at all but still made the effort to make it happen. Good communication and pretty quick turnaround after the deposit was submitted.
CATERPILLAR Glass - 5/5 stars
Amazing communication. Worked with us on custom designs. He was behind schedule on one order and issued us a refund without us asking because he felt bad for the long wait. Talk about good business practices! He also participated in our "A Tubular 420 Show" and produced some really cool collaborations! Really nice and humble guy.
CELLINI & CO. Dabbers - 5/5 stars
Very professional. Great communication. We have placed a few orders and never had any issues.
CERIO Glass - 5/5 stars
Very long wait times because his work is very nice and shops tend to place pretty large order (including us). But he doesn't require a deposit until he is ready to start the order. I had some special color tubing I had been saving and asked if I could send it to him to use on our order and he accommodated with no hesitation. Good communications, solid dude!
CHARLI Glass - 5/5 stars
Only placed one order so far, but the transaction was smooth. Accommodated special color requests. Good communication. Quality work.
CHIBBS Glass - 5/5 stars
Doesn't ask for a deposit until he is ready to start the order. Very fast turn around. Great communication. On our first order he even asked what colors we like and included a color list for our reference. When my dog passed he sent me some positive vibes too, which was very much appreciated. Great guy!
CHUBBY Glass - 5/5 stars
Only one order so far and after the last Glass Vegas he had a really long wait list, but worth the wait. Solid work. Quick turnaround. Doesn't require payment until the order is complete. Great communication.
CHUNK Glass - 5/5 stars
We've always loved Chunk's work, but we've only been doing business for about 2 years now. Doesn't require a deposit. Fast responses. Solid business.
CODY WADE Glass - 5/5 stars
Required a deposit, but the turnaround was only about 6 weeks. Also, he is fairly local to our shop and took a drive out to check out our spot and hand deliver the order saving us on shipping, which was really cool of him. He even stayed awhile and we chatted it up. Super nice guy, great glass work and business ethics. He also participated in our "A Tubular 420 Show" and made some straight HEAT with a couple other artists. Always reposts our stories on IG.
CRAWFORD Glass - 5/5 stars
We've placed several large orders with Crawford and we literally never have any issues. He never requires a deposit and always gets us a great variety of colors. Amazing communication and super nice guy.
CREEP Glass - 5/5 stars
A lot of people don't know this but before we started The Dab Lab, we worked with Jacob during our early YouTube days. We had a pretty big reach for the times and he worked with us on individual custom orders for our followers. This was the true beginning on The Dab Lab and we will forever be grateful. He is super humble and easy to work with. Any problems we ever had were always taken care of promptly. Top notch communication.
CROUCH Glass - 5/5 stars
We met Michael at the AGE Glass event in Vegas. He shared space with another one of our top vender Custom Creations Glass. His work is top quality and he has amazing prices. Because of this his wait times are usually pretty long but he doesn't collect payment until the order is complete. He also made a piece for our "A Tubular 420 Show" with Custom Creations that we ended up keeping for our collection because we loved it so much!
CUSTOM CREATION Glass - 5/5 stars
We've been working with C2 for almost a decade now and it's been nothing but a pleasure. It's been really cool to see their transformation with their scientific glass and to see them become one of the top producers in the game. Communication is always excellent and they do not collect payment until the order is ready to ship. Every time we see Mike at a glass event we always stop and chat. Great humble person and killer glass blower.
DILLINGER Glass - 5/5 stars
We haven't worked with John in quite a few years, but we used to order from him all the time! He is a very humble and nice guy. When he was in the area he came by our home and collabed on a piece with me in our home studio! That was such a cool experience. We also visited his studio when we were last in Portland, OR and went out for some drinks at Cascade Brewery. He turned me into a sour ale fanatic! He makes some beautiful glass art and is super easy to work with. Never once had a complaint. Hopefully we can get around to working with him again!
DOMINO Glass - 5/5 stars
Another artists we haven't done business with in many years. We never had any issues in the past. But lately it has been really tough to get his work as he doesn't produce very many pieces at a time.
DON CHILE ORTEGA Glass - 5/5 stars
Long wait, but excellent communication. He double checked to make sure we were still good to go when we came up in line and didn't require a deposit. He even went out of his way to do a collab with Shamby Glass for us. Which I greatly appreciated and obviously had to keep one for my collection!
IN PROGRESS, MORE COMING SOON...
