Popular Las Vegas-based glass tube maker Jerome Baker Designs will release a custom series of non-fungible tokens (NFTs) that will be tied directly to bongos that will be tied to matching physical assets in early February.
The NFT, which is based on the Ethereum blockchain, fully describes the entire complex and exceptional glass blowing process for each bong, and the tokens have unique advantages. They will be on display for the Super Bowl on February 13, and several real bongs will be auctioned off at the Superchief Gallery.
Smoking marketplace SLX ranks Jason Harris, founder and president of Jerome Baker Designs, among the top 10 glass blowers worldwide.
Jason started his own business back in the early 90s of the 20th century and created a lot of bespoke products for such popular personalities as Snoop Dogg, George Clooney, the Grateful Dead, Santana and Rita Marley.
The artist said that he is very glad that he was able to enter the world of digital art, which is based on cryptography.
“As an artist, we need a certificate of authenticity to connect with art. NFTs act as a certificate of authenticity and create value and heritage. “
Glassblowing is a special art form that cannot be replicated, Harris said.
“You will have a documented experience of creating this work of art, and therein lies the magic. It’s like buying a pair of Jordans. If you ever want to sell them, you may want the packaging to be in perfect condition. The NFT acts as an authentication certificate and the artwork acts as a package. “
Harris has announced that the 5 NFT bongs on display for Sunday’s Super Bowl will be from the Burnt Orange collection (translucent bright orange glass bongs).
Working with NFT is not Jerome Baker Designs’ first experience in the crypto area, and his studio has been accepting Bitcoin as payment since 2012. The studio plans to start accepting payments in Ethereum soon.
