Glass Pipe on Long Island – Interesting Facts About Glass Pipes

Did you know glass pipes have been around for thousands of years? The ancient Egyptians formed glass pipes out of molten ashes, sand, and lime over a mold or a core made from clay and/or dung. The process was pretty simple back then, so all they did was dig out the core and voila, they created a glass smoking vessel. Several hundred years later, the Romans invented glass blowing which made what was called the blowpipe they designed from clay. Today, the glass pipe on Long Island is a modern and popular product used for smoking combustible materials.

The main reason people use glass pipes for smoking is the clean, pure taste it provides the user over other types of pipes. Over the years, people have found glass to be a better option over wood or corncob pipes. Glass water pipes are designed to allow the smoke to cool before being inhaled which is a perk for people with sensitive throats.

Glass pipes are now made of very heavy duty glass like Pyrex which is almost unbreakable which avoids that pesky problem for those with butter fingers. Heavy duty glass is also used to avoid overheating of the pipe. These pipes can be single blown, have the inside out design, and come in a variety of shapes and sizes. Most people who use these pipes collect them more than they use them due to their great beauty.

Glass pipes come in shapes like bore, straight spoon, briar, Sherlock, and hammer. Some collectors choose different shapes for their aesthetics and unique designs, but there is a purpose for the shapes. Various shapes can create a swirling smoke effect, prevent ash splatter, prevent sticking, provide an effective airway for smoke, and/or help to avoid hot spots in the pipe. The shape is also chosen for the way the pipe feels in the hand.

Since glass pipes are made from glass, they are considered sustainable and renewable. This is another reason people who collect and/or use glass pipes choose glass over other materials for their pipes.
