The other January 9th birthday I mentioned in a previous post is a bit more significant and personal, as it is the day that a very dear friend of mine was born, for which I am eternally grateful and thankful.
An astonishing guitar player in his own right, but also an accomplished artist… a one-of-a-kind artist at that.
Rick grew up in an artistic environment in San Pedro, California, with his influential step-father artist Jimmy Zar, well-known for is amazing oil paintings, and his younger brother Chet Zar, who left his mark in Hollywood, but has branched way out beyond the confines of the silver screen.
The Devil’s Apprentice…
or at least the mad scientist’s protégé
Rick Zar used to work for the amazing mad scientist Larry Albright in Venice Beach. Larry Albright was well-known for building contraptions based on Nikola Tesla’s theories. At one point in time, he was the only person on the planet doing what he does. (Go to the video at the end of this posting to watch and listen to a clip of Larry Albright).
Pioneering in blown-glass contraptions known as Crackle Tubes and Lightning Globes, and holding the world record for having built the smallest neon art for the Francis Ford Coppola movie “One From the Heart”. Also having created installations for Stephen Speilberg’s “Close Encounters of the Third Kind”, building custom pieces for Michael Jackson, and a long list of other amazing, unique works of art that have found their way all over the planet.
Let’s focus for a moment on this latest artistic venture, PlasmaPipes.com… an artistic endeavor which took a lifetime to achieve. It had to. Necessary were the many years of accumulated specialized skills and esoteric knowledge in order to be able to pull off the amazing feats of artistry currently being unleashed into the world.
Be the first kid on your block to have one of these one-of-a-kind blown-art Plasma and Argon gas glowing art pieces in your home. No one, but NO one on the planet does this.
There is only one man capable of making these unique artistic beauties. There are a few who have tried, but where they have all failed in their attempts, Rick succeeds because of his sheer mastery of the craft. He is wizard-like in his abilities. It’s a magick that only he knows how to manipulate to full effect.
Retailers all over the country are ordering these babies up. Each art piece is custom, hand-made by the artist. Why pay retail prices when you can get wholesale prices here! Just tell him that Twan sent you! Enjoy the sample photos on this site (which don’t do them justice). You got to see them to believe it.
