Not Your Dad’s Hash Pipe: Pics From the Puffco Glass OpenDavid DownsJuly 17, 2018
Life moves pretty fast. One minute you’re hot-knifing CO2 hash in a Cozumel hotel bathroom, hoping to sip some sweet, potent vapor from an upside down glass.
Nowadays, portable electronic hash bubblers go for $400. You can dab on a wakeboard. The glassware attachments alone fetch thousands of dollars.
This Saturday in Los Angeles, hash pipe leaders Puffco throw the Puffco Art Show, where you can buy one-of-a-kind glass attachments for their smash-hit, battery-powered dab rig — the Peak. It's Kind of a Big Deal

The Peak base fits to a detachable glass bubbler, one of which comes standard with every Peak. But any piper can make glass for the Peak, so long as it fits the base. Behold, a brand new canvas for glass artists worldwide.
The Art Show Saturday follows a global contest this spring with a $5,000 first prize for the most popular piece of custom Peak glass. The finalists proved astounding, conjuring: heady, interlacing colorful patterns; Tron-like glow-in-the-dark circuitboards; impossible aquatic blue and red bubbles; futuristic, sci-fi glassine egg seemingly roiling with red silicate; the immortal Death holding an ooze-green scythe.
Presented below are some of the finalists from the PuffCo Glass Open of 2018. Find similar stuff on sale Saturday in Los Angeles.
