Sea-Themed "Barracuda Friends" Sitting Sherlock
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 Sherlock
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.
Harley Morales is a talented heady glass artist currently working out of Asheville, North Carolina. He is currently working as the in-house glassblower at one of our favorite local distributors, GlasseX. His heady pieces have won him the eyes and attention of many fellow glassblowers in the industry. His Illuminati pieces even won him 3rd place in the Go Green category at the Champs Trade Show in Denver, Colorado. Many of his pieces feature impressively detailed themes, ranging from undersea ecosystems to candy kingdoms. Just having Harley Morales on the Smoke Cartel shelves makes us extremely happy, and we always recommend his work to our heady piece enthusiasts.
