The Craft of Neon Light Bending

Endeavor Neon brings back the uncommon art form.

Started by his father who began bending neon light 30 years ago, Andrew Hibbs is continuing the family business with Endeavor Neon. Honing his craft since the ripe age of thirteen, Hibbs now creates neon light fixtures for a range of businesses and customers. Treating the increasingly uncommon process as a form of art, Hibbs takes great pride in the craft and mostly enjoys the glass bending process which requires ultimate precision and a steady hand to orchestrate multiple bends. Take a look at the video above, directed by Stray Matter, and learn how your favorite neon signs are made from the preparation, filling and bending.

Additionally, check out our HYPEBEAST TV Process video on neon light making in Hong Kong.
