"Tea Time" Teapot Bubbler

How It's Made
Glass Spoon Pipes
Despite their straightforward nature, making hand pipes requires a large amount of training and experience. Glass artists start with a tube about four inches long and decorate it with a variety of techniques such as fuming, linework, etc. Next the artist starts to create the shape of the pipe by stretching the neck and forming the mouthpiece. The artist then carefully blows into the end of the tube to expand the glass and shape the bowl. They then push the bowl and pop the carb before placing it in the kiln to finish!

Features of this Bubbler
There are many advantages to a bent neck design. Some people prefer it because of the aesthetics, but the bent neck serves an important function in some pieces. Because of the angle, it prevents splash-back into your mouth.
We consider this piece to have thick glass, which helps with the durability of certain glass items. Thick glass means your piece is less likely to break as a result of damage. While many of our pieces have thick glass, we felt the need to point it out specifically here.
