Glass Pipes: Part 2

 Patience is bitter, but its fruit is sweet. 

-Jean-Jacques Rousseau


Thanks for stopping by to view my work! This is part two of the series. All pictures in this series are glass pipes that I have made. It has been a great summer, but very hot, and I'm ready for it to start cooling down a bit. For this batch I am trying to use some vibrant colors that are transparent, sometimes have that sparkle we all love, and are very compatible with standard clear Borosilicate tubing. I have also been working on adding some horns or spikes to the pipes.


VERIFICATION:


Coming up in my next blog posts I will show you around my shop, the labor required to get up and running, and answer anyone's questions about cost of tools or material. Hoping to get in another giveaway soon after that, be sure to follow if you want a chance at some free glass.


I do hope you enjoy my glass pipes. Until next time, cheers!

That is coming up very soon. I am currently in the process of writing a big post about the building of my glass shop. After that I will be doing short (probably timelapse) videos of the manufacture process. I know everyone will enjoy all the flames and molten glass, so I will be sure to get this going ASAP. I just ordered a stand and will get my camera situation proper.

The design has confused me at first glance I found a dildo and then read your article and it's a pipe. Really good design.

Thanks! I tried to keep things sleek and simplistic with vibrant colors.

LOL yes it is very funny that many regular spoon pipes (hand pipes) have quite a phallic look to them. There is even a joke that goes around the glass industry.

Cool. Hey check out my YT channel of some videos I've made for Steemit. https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLjM000ZIaoFL7ft3tBy65Ze5fmLNwuOCq
Don't know if you do any video marketing for your business or if you're even allowed to do that. But I'd like to create some videos for you if you're interested. Just let me know....@kbargold

What @domino said. LOL I was wondering if I was the only one who thought it looked like a dildo. I was like spikes? Ouch... or Oh...?
I really need to stop writing smut so I can pull my head out of the gutter. hahah!

Hey that's ok! Appreciate you checking out the pipes I worked on. Like i said in the other comments we have a joke in the industry about the regular hand pipe being very phallic lol. Pipes are 18+ in most places anyway so no problem with me. I'm sure I could make something very appealing, that women would enjoy, and sell it to the same shops. :P
