Glass Hammer Bubbler Handpipe – Fumed and Colored Glass
The hammer bubbler is a stylish way to enjoy waterpipe percolation in a smaller, more portable handpipe. This piece from American Glass Works is a truly a work of art, with its swirling fuming, colored glass and a long, slender, worked tentacle snaking up the side of the bowl. The stem features elegant curves and bulges, or “marias” in glassblower’s speak. The deep chamber holds water to diffuse and cool smoke as it travels through to the mouthpiece. The hammer’s bottom is flat, enabling you to rest the pipe safely on your coffee table.
Because each pipe is individually handblown by glass artists in an Oregon collective, the pipe you receive will be one-of-a-kind. The colors may vary from what you see in the photo, but the overall design will be the same. Fumed glass changes color over time with heat and buildup, so your pipe’s look will evolve as you use it. Thorough cleaning will return it to its original hues, so you can watch it slowly change all over again!
