Nuggs was honored to document the ‘headiest chess match’ in the world. The Godfather of Pipemaking, Bob Snodgrass, was challenged to a game of chess by one of the most iconic pipemaker’s of our generation, Matt Robertson, during the Champs Trade Show in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The featured functional chess board piece, ‘Noah’s Ark’ was made using lampworking techniques and borosilicate glass. The 2-member collaboration was created by Robertson and Hoobs during the annual Degenerate Flame Off Classic and was voted 1st place for the 2019 DFO People’s Choice Award.
