Glassblowing has been used to create innovative and affordable bongs, and today there are a variety of water pipes created with different diffusion methods, percolators, and styles. Through the use of oxides and sulfides, Pyrex has also become an industry mainstay.
Some of the newest styles of water pipes to come to market include nectar collectors, recyclers, and incyclers. These kinds of pipes provide methods to cool down smoke before being drawn into the lungs. With different pipe-making artists collaborating from around the world, electroforming or etching their creations, it is clear to see how far glassblowing has come over the years. We will look forward to seeing what’s next as this beautiful craft continues to evolve.
