Frequently Asked Questions
1. Are ceramic pipes safe to smoke out of?
toxic, lead free minerals, and are free of
any other harmful materials.
If you are looking to purchase from another
manufacturer check with them to ensure
they are using safe materials.
degrees fahrenheit, so if you are using a
lighter, magnifying glass, or wick you have
nothing to worry about. Ceramics are
insulators and are great at keeping heat in.

their crystalline structure. Now it is a bit
complex because glass and ceramics
(pottery) fall under the broad category of
ceramics. Our ceramics are made out of
organized to repeat on and on in the same
connectivity throughout the entire
formation of the pipe. As for glass it is
has some organization freedom primarily
being able to be as a solid or a liquid
when being worked with heat. For glass
the structure is made of
building blocks that bond
of a glass pipe. Do note that our
ceramics are coated with glass (known
as glaze) making it have similarities. Lastly our
ceramics have a natural energy emitting
from every piece, but in general ceramics
have an earthy feel that glass may or
may not have.
when answering this question. The
primary answer we have seen is how
and who made the pipe.
the pipe and why, you begin to
understand the love that it was
created with. Love is key in making a
truly strong pipe. Next is the process in
which they were made. If any process
for glass such as annealing is done
improperly it will result in a flawed
piece, and for ceramics if the bisque fire
was skipped it would also result in a
flawed piece. Lastly we would say
thickness of the pipe adds to the strength.
To answer your question, purchase a pipe
directly from someone who loves to make
pipes (glass or ceramic) and creates them
using the highest standards. This will
ensure that you will now have a pipe that
you will care to love and then strength will
be of little concern. As for a straight
answer, if the thickness of both glass and
ceramic pipe were equal and the "how it
was made" was flawless, they would be
EQUALLY AS STRONG.

The inside of our pipes also have glaze

cleaning formula will work but the
cheapest cleaning solution is Isopropyl
and salt. To clean, place plenty of your
cleaning solution into a reusable plastic
bag and then place your pipe in the bag.
Shake for 5 minutes or until clean and
then rinse pipe inside and out with water.
To clean our water pipes, place the

Shake for 5 minutes and rinse with water
