If you see bongs, pipes, and dab rigs that look like beautiful bejeweled pieces in online smoke shops, it’s most likely from Empire Glassworks. All their pieces are remarkable manifestations of skill and craftsmanship without sacrificing functionality. You’re sure to get that wow factor visually and efficiency with Empire Glassworks.
Empire Glassworks started as a high-end jewelry store, which is why all their pieces are full of detail and intricately crafted. Established in 2013, the company is a mix of skillful artists that have more than 40 years of experience crafting luxurious decorative glass pieces. Applying skills developed through the years, these expert glassblowers are able to produce exceptional smoking devices that are unique to their brand.
There are several reasons why Empire Glasswork pieces should be added to your collection
Pipes and dab rigs from Empire Glass are made using only the highest quality of glass sourced from the US and Europe. Because of its purity, you get the best smoking experience that you won’t achieve with cheap glass pieces. You get enhanced flavor and smooth hits, giving you and your friends an enjoyable smoking experience.
Every single piece from Empire Glassworks is handmade using a mix of traditional, conventional, and modern glass blowing techniques. Every color mix is also custom-made as well. This means glass pieces, although of the same design, won’t look exactly alike. You have something unique that has a more personal connection with you.
All novelty pipes from Empire Glassworks are made through lampworking wherein glass pieces are created by using a torch instead of a kiln. This gives artisans more freedom to add details such as what you see here in this Sea Creatures Diffused Downstem Straight Tube Mini Bong.
After each piece is carefully fashioned through “lampworking, it’s carefully annealed or exposed to the heat of over 1000 °F. This tempering makes the pipe stronger, more durable, and have better resistance to high temperatures. Your piece will last longer even after a long and enjoyable dabbing session. The colors also pop, giving you a beautiful piece that you can proudly show off to your friends.
Another thing that sets Empire Glassworks apart from other makers of heady glass pieces is their use of Dichroic glass. It’s hard to see in the pictures, but pieces made with Dichroic glass have this shimmer to them that is different from one piece to another. The glass is made by applying several micro-thin layers of various metal such as silver, titanium, aluminum, gold, chromium, magnesium, zirconium, and silicone. These layers are applied to the surface, and the glass piece is fired in a vacuum kiln set in extreme temperatures. The result is an entrancing visual display of colors that changes depending on what angle you’re holding the glass piece.
You can’t deny the craftsmanship and dedication in every pipe made by Empire Glassworks. The pieces are so beautiful you can use them as a display, only those who are familiar with it will notice. Can you imagine hitting a spoon fashioned to look like a hotdog? Some pieces are either flashy or discreetly designed that they can pass off as a decoration, not as a smoking piece. Themes range from a cartoon, pop culture, branded sci-fi, as well as whatever imaginative interest spark from their glass artisans.
However, these pieces are more than just for decoration. Many like the way Empire Glassworks pieces deliver smooth hits. There’s no drag or resistance, and the function stays smooth throughout the session. There’s no question in flavor, and the pieces last for years.
