More About Empire Glassworks
Empire Glassworks launched in 2013 and its artists boast over 40 years of professional experience, and that experience shows. Empire Glassworks’ pieces raise the bar for what is typically found behind the counter at most head shops. Each Empire glass rig, pipe, bong, and accessory is individually handcrafted and designed by a network of highly skilled glassblowers. Popular products like the Shenron bong and Shampoo water bong, show that Empire creates some of the most unique glass pipes out there.
Fun, artistic works may be what Empire Glassworks is known for, but the products maintain their utility. Its artists work with high-quality European imported and US glass that is annealed over 1000 degrees Fahrenheit to ensure durability. The high temperature also allows for the rich and vibrant colors seen in all their themed glass pipes.
Dichroic Glass Rigs, Bongs, and More
In addition to their creative designs, Empire Glassworks is also known for their use of the opalescent dichroic glass. NASA originally used dichroic glass for astronaut face shields. This mesmerizing reflective feature is created from layers of metal oxides that will either reflect or absorb light, creating a shimmering effect. It’s impossible to duplicate an identical result each time, so no two Empire Glassworks pieces are the same.
Unique glass pieces like the Mini Bee Hive bong display the distinctiveness of Empire Glassworks’ designs. Many of their themes come from pop culture and customer suggestions. The vibrant colors, subtle touches, and texture make their pieces stand out in the crowd.
