Outlaw Glass

As cannabis legalization continues to take root and spread rapidly, much of the media discussion surrounding this societal sea-change has been focused on the economics involved. But how will ending the War on Weed transform us culturally? The hottest hot take seems to be that marijuana is "going mainstream," an analysis that presumes this cultural exchange will be a one-way street. So to better understand what authentic underground cannabis culture has to offer, Outlaw Glass examines work from leading "functional glass" artists.

Sessions with Noah Berman

Intuition simply means knowing without knowing how or why you know, without any attachment or deep-seated need to understand why or how this information shows up, only serving as a counter-intuition hindrance. Noah Berman's work is centered primarily around personal intention and how that's given attention. Why information is gathered and what we shed light upon is often more revealing than the information in and of itself; the ultimate goal is always a greater sense of clarity, trust and surrender to the unknown.
