Chase Hardman


Chase Hardman was advised that the key to creating the most superific piece is to draw inspiration from childhood memories. One of his fondest is of his grandma hanging the laundry out to dry on a clothesline using old-school clothes pins.

Making a glass clothes pin seems fairly simple, but it took Chase, who also creates vases, lamp shades, perfume bottles, goblets and bowls at the local hot shop gallery on the Southern Oregon Coast, two years to get the device functioning just right.

“You can’t just melt glass into a clothes pin – you have to cut it, grind it, and fabricate it to the exact specifications necessary so that the spring fits and works properly. It wasn’t until I started doing pottery that I got the idea to turn my pottery wheel into a grinder and was able to grind the clothespin into something close to the right shape.”

Now that Chase has perfected the clothespins, he makes them in a variety of sizes and colors. Not only are they the ultimate headie roach clip, but Chase also attaches them to pipes where they can be used to hold e-nail cords, dab tools, Q-tips, and even a ‘fat nug’ that you can pick off of while you’re smoking.

Claims of ‘Fentanyl-Laced Cannabis’ Are Common, But Are They Accurate?
