"Blue Orchid" Fritted Spoon with Floral Marble
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 Spoon
FossGlass is the glassblowing brand of Matt Lim, a young up-and-coming glassblower. Matt glassblows right here out of the Smoke Cartel warehouse in Savannah, Georgia. As the official Smoke Cartel glassblower, Matt is also the man behind a lot of Smoke Cartel glass maintenance. Self-taught but refined at a Philadelphia glassblowing school, FossGlass has come a long way since emerging on the glass scene. On a FossGlass piece you'll often find gorgeous implosion-style marbles, purple and green slyme glass, and rounded organic shapes. Smoke Cartel is proud to represent a glassblower so talented and visionary, and we're looking forward to seeing what he comes up with next.
