The artists mix colors and blow the glass by hand, using a technique called “lampworking”, bringing sophistication, yet an original quality to our smoke sessions. The experience within their team has been growing for 40 years in the glass blowing industry using borosilicate beads, and creating trinkets for the high-end jewelry market. Much of this work allowed them to bring to us a line of passionately designed hand-crafted, vaping and smoking accessories along with limited edition collections designed by the artists.

Once colors are ready the piece immediately comes together and then it’s then fired at over 1000 degrees fahrenheit in the kiln, making for an ultra-durable finished product.
