Glass Sherlock Bubbler Handpipe - Silver and Gold Fume - Colored Glass and Magnifiers
The stand-up sherlock 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 silver and gold fuming, colored glass and a long, slender, worked tentacle snaking up the side of the bowl. Clear glass marbles and magnifiers also decorate the bowl, and a pointed, curling horn drips down from underneath the stem, which features elegant curves and bulges, or "marias" in glassblower's speak. The deep chamber holds a little water to diffuse and cool smoke before it travels through to the mouthpiece. The sherlock's bottom is flat, enabling you to stand 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! This photo was taken after some use so you can see how the colors on your glass bubbler might develop.
