The Michelangelo of joint rolling is getting festive this Thanksgiving, with a custom-made piece shaped like a turkey. Tony Greenhand is a Portland-based artist who makes a living sculpting made-to-order joints with a DIY look that could be easily mistaken for Tom Sachs bricolages. Far beyond the humble crossjoint, he's constructed smokable tacos, pineapples, Simpsons characters, a peacock with 12 joints for feathers, an articulating Tommy Chong, a replica of the Seattle Space Needle, and a Tommy gun blunt that shoots tiny projectile joints. Greenhand has rolled for Snoop Dogg, Rihanna, and Chong, been featured on CNN and in Playboy and Vogue, and holds the world record for rolling the largest joint—a 4.2lb monstrosity disguised as a watermelon. High Times called him one of the world's best joint-rollers.
This holiday, Greenhand whipped up a tribute to America's most munchie-friendly celebration, consisting of the bird, a miniature plate of greens, some crumble stuffing, and a tiny bowl of kief. It took about two hours: "I made it to smoke on my customary walk-before-Thanksgiving-dinner with my girlfriend," he tells The Creators Project. "I'll be spending the day with her family. They don't smoke, but they know we do, hence the smaller turkey. Next year it's dinner at my place. I'll be rolling up the whole meal and there will be more than enough to go around."
