These high-quality pieces are absolute showstoppers and will be the highlight of any collection.

What is special about Empire Glassworks?
For collectors of American-made heady glass bongs and pipes, Empire Glassworks stands above the rest as each is one of a kind. The business also supports several non-profits including the World Wildlife Fund, Coral Reef Alliance, and Susan G. Koman, among others. Sought after for their unique and sometimes out-of-the-box designs, artists at Empire Glassworks aren’t afraid to experiment with different types of glass, textures, techniques, and shapes. Who else would think about making a pipe that looks like a boba ice cream or mochi donut, a dab rig that resembles a Loreal kid’s shampoo bottle, or a bong bowl in the shape of a dragon fruit complete with the little black seeds? The detail, realism, and quality is truly unmatched. In addition to being head turners, their pieces are all designed and hand blown in the USA using the highest quality borosilicate glass imported from Europe and hand mixed to produce rare colors you can’t get anywhere else. To achieve these vibrant hues and higher durability, Empire Glasswork artists use a special technique called lampworking. For a sparkling glitter effect, dichroic glass (used in NASA spacesuit helmets) is handmade by mixing in several different metals to create a spectacular shiny effect that’s different from one batch to the next. This isn’t your Dollar Store glitter! The utmost care and attention to detail has gone into each piece every step of the way adding to their exclusivity amongst collectors of heady glass.
What are the benefits of Empire Glassworks smoking accessories?
These works of art may look too beautiful to use, but they’re not just designed for their outward appearances. Empire Glasswork smoking accessories also function incredibly well, blending form and function. There are two main benefits to owning Empire Glass pipes, bongs, dab rings, and other smoking accessories. The first is that there’s no doubt about the high quality and safety of the materials used because no one should have to question what they’re smoking out of. Empire Glasswork uses pure, non-toxic borosilicate glass imported from Europe and hand blown at their hot shop in Southern California so the entire process from design to creation remains in house. The other advantage is that every Empire Glassworks smoking accessory is truly one of a kind and there’s no two pieces that are exactly alike. Adding an Empire Glasswork pipe, bong, dab rig, or bong bowl to your collection is like owning a Salvador Dalí painting. There may be a few others that have a similar style, but there’s never going to be another one that’s exactly like yours. Yes, that kind of exclusivity comes with a higher price tag, but Empire Glassworks has smaller, more affordable pieces like dry pipes, dabbers, and bong bowls to start off your collection before making the big investment.
How to clean Empire Glassworks smoking accessories. Do you need something special?
Empire Glass pipes and bongs may resemble delicate sculptures, but they’re actually very durable and do not require anything special to clean them. The easiest way to clean any glassware is to purchase a non-toxic bong cleaner solution, some brands are even reusable! You can either fill the inside of the bong and use a silicone cap or add smaller smoking accessories right into the bag of solution. Another option is to find two sealable plastic bags, isopropyl alcohol, and coarse salt. Remove the slide and put it into one of the bags covered in alcohol and salt. Do the same for the bong in a separate bag. Be sure that the solution works its way inside the bong and bowl. Give it a very gentle shake so the salt is able to scrub away build up in hard to reach places. If you’re worried that something may break, instead of shaking, let the glassware soak overnight. Use a cotton bud dipped in isopropyl alcohol to wipe away resin in hard to reach areas. Finish off with a good rinse in freshwater.
