My name is John M/Circle, the owner and creator behind Mobius. I’ve been a full-time glassblower for 19 years and Mobius has been my sole focus for the past 10. Since I like to make things myself, “from scratch”, I decided I'd make one. Maybe it's a deep desire to learn, maybe it's because I want things done a particular way, maybe it's because in the end I'm more creative with a broad base of knowledge and experience, maybe it's because of my introverted wiring, maybe I just have control issues. However it may be, I have a "from scratch" mentality that permeates everything I do. A little over a decade ago, before Mobius, I decided to figure out how to use a glass lathe to make a "scientific style" water pipe. I'd already made hand-pipes for 10 years, but I knew lathe work was a completely different skill, and it intrigued me. My initial attempts were terrible, but I persisted. At the time, I'd never actually seen a "scientific" glass pipe made in person, so I decided I would have to figure it out. The decision to teach myself lathe-work opened up more challenges.
blending the innovative bench made color techniques I'd been using to make handmade pipes, into the tight tolerances of scientific work. This lead to exploring product design, sandblasting, glass beveling, furnace work, shop design, graphic design, photography, videography, website design, and my biggest challenge to date, borosilicate color making. There is nothing like the feeling of designing an object on paper and then assembling it out of clear glass, to hold in three-dimensional space. Crush clear quality-control rejects into tiny pieces of glass with a hammer, mix raw metal oxides into the crushed glass and then cook it all down in a furnace to create a completely unique color. Next pull the liquid colored glass out of the furnace into hollow tubing, cut that tubing down and chuck it into my lathe to melt with torches to form into a full colored pipe. Design sandblasting logos within Adobe Illustrator, print negatives out and expose photo-resistive film to then etch the item. And finally, box up the item and send it off to its new home. These are truly unique objects made from scratch with great care. For years, I have done my best to remain private in the connected world we all live in. Even within the tightly knit "pipe industry" I pretty much kept my head down and did my own thing. I am quiet and simple, and the internet is neither of those things. But, now I feel it is time for me to tell a bit of my story, add a little context about Mobius and present my company in a way that reflects the way I approach my work. And again, thank you for supporting my family and I, my crew and their families. The Top 12 Best Glass Bongs of 2020 [Full Review] Stoners who prefer to augment their cannabis palate by investing in top-quality glass will be well aware of the fact that there are hundreds of companies – if not thousands of them – that provide glass bongs for sale . Although glass bongs are a relatively recent phenomenon in the West, they have actually been used (in some form another) in other cultures around the world for centuries. In Africa, for example, archaeologists have discovered smoking pipes made of bamboo, horns, and earthenware dating from the 13th century. Throughout the Middle Ages, bamboo bongs were prominent in Asia, spreading quickly from Thailand to the economic hub of Hong Kong. DID YOU KNOW: Bongs have been used for cannabis consumption in Asia since at least the 13th century A.D.? Glass bongs (or rather ‘bongs’ in general — not necessarily glass bongs) eventually made their way to Europe in the 18th century, finally reaching America by the early 19th century. However, true-to-form glass bongs that were designed specifically for cannabis use really only came to prominence in the 1970s, with the growth of the ‘hippy glass-blowing’ movement.
It was around this time that the first patent for a glass bong was filed in the United States. Today, glass blowing artists are in hot demand as the humble bong is now one of the most coveted items among weed purists. And to be sure, there are some truly, truly gorgeous pieces out there – pieces that are almost too beautiful to fire up and deface with resin coatings! In this article, we take a look at twelve unique pieces that we feel are the best glass bongs for sale currently on the market. Though to be fair, we have considered things like price, convenience, and ease-of-use in addition to pure craftsmanship and artistry. In other words, these are the glass bongs that (in our opinion at least) represent the best overall value for your money. Before we jump right into our top-12 reviews of the best glass bongs, it would be relevant to talk a little bit about what exactly bongs are, and what kinds of differences and variations exist among all the different styles out there. After all, you don’t know a great deal about bong use if you think there is only one kind! Ultimately the shape, size, and height of a glass bong impacts its ability to pull smoke through the water chamber and into the tube (and eventually into your lungs). Moreover, the diameter of the bowl and stem also dictate the flow of smoke and air.
