Handmade bongs are not a new phenomenon. The oldest bong was excavated in Russia and believed to be 2,400 years old. The Ming Dynasty is known to have introduced smoking through a pipe in the 16th century. Recent legislative changes around the world have made the use of bongs more popular with the US leading the way in creativity and individualism. Our dream team of artists have hand made some wonderful water pipes which means that most are limited editions merely by default. Maybe one day some of these mini-bongs will be collectible artifacts. These works of art, as already mentioned, can be used for smoking or make great ornamental gifts.

Great attention has been given to the details of smaller bong designs made by artists employing heritage craft skills that were almost lost through mass production methods and the industrial revolution. Now, as a nation, we have a great appetite for and appreciate the skills of artists and what is better than owning something that has been hand crafted and designed by a skilled individual rather than a computer designed product. Understandably owning a handmade bong means that each piece has its own individual characteristics. No two pieces from any range will be identical.
Some of these mini-bongs are made with the centuries’ old glass-blowing craft and we have some spectacular designs in our collection. Empire Glassworks’ Pineapple Paradise Bong is quirky and fun depicting a cocktail that is colorful and brash as are their Key Lime Sundae Bong and Nano Panda Family Water Pipe. The level of skill required to produce such ostentatious handmade glassware and accomplishing colors and patterns to form so perfectly cannot be understated. Typically Empire Glassworks’ designs are adventurous, flamboyant, incredibly detailed and some that are on the edge of the surrealism spectrum.
Goo Roo Designs’ mini-bongs are minimalistic and stylish. Some of their standard-sized bongs are surreal and we hope that these may be extended to their mini-bong range. Even so minimalistic never fails as a concept. Brothers With Glass has worked with Chameleon Glass for a number of years and who like to stay true to their name. Whilst Chameleon has only a small collection of small water works these are available in a range of colors. What Chameleon creates, so well, is blending colors that give two-tone and shimmering effects.

Our partners like EA Glass take a different approach to their unique glassware is generosity with their materials, a lot of effort is put into producing items with multiple sections that are heavily worked and raked and worth every cent. Mad Hatters Glass takes a different spin on their fumed spiral neck bong. Pardon the pun, I couldn’t resist it. Seriously though, these superb bongs are available in a number of colors, remarkably some have a retro look about them, from the 60s / 70s, in particular, the white and orange versions. Yet the blue and the blue with red spiral neck bongs have a modern, almost futurist look about them. These are fun, functional, practical, and robust enough to be transported about due to being made with 5mm thick glass.
We take quality control seriously and expect the same high standard from all of our artists who perform strict quality control checks on their products ensuring defective products do not get passed onto Brothers With Glass. The glass-blowing community is still a relatively small sector and the increase in demand has meant that you, the customer, can enjoy a wide selection of smoking products that are durable, eye-catching and talking pieces.
