Welcome GlassLab 303 – where art meets science, I have a feeling we will be good friends. High Quality Glass with an artistic twist made in Denver Colorado. They have hit the trifecta with all 3, in my humble opinion. Each and every piece they craft is made from the highest quality materials and are individually inspected in Denver. Only then are each given a “Colorado Certified” Logo to ensure authenticity.
TIP: GlassLab 303 prides themselves on their signature percolators that set a new standard in smooth and cleaner smoke (will never actually be “clean” though, you are still smoking).
Legalities changing all over the globe have really bought out some pretty interesting innovations that do not exclude artistic elements. Many end up becoming “collectors’ items” and are never used. No longer do you need to compromise on either quality or artistic merit, you can now have both without having to rob a bank.
Another one of my shorter pieces standing at almost 18cms top to bottom. I would also describe is as on the slimmer side, 8cms at its widest (base pedestal). The base is thickened and wide for safety helping keep it upright. The water chamber is surprisingly roomy, and the extra space is provided via a tall chamber. A fixed down stem 90° angled sits within the chamber culminating in a Lace Percolator (more below). A 14mm flower bowl is provided, the only removable portion. It comes complete with a little handle/bump for easy movement. A smaller sized bowl.
TIP: For those of you who like art there are colourful designs upon the glass. One is the authenticity/quality certification.
A dramatic narrowing occurs at the point where the water chamber becomes the neck. An important design feature that helps funnel smoke up towards your mouthpiece whilst trapping the water below where it belongs. An anti-splash back effect. The entire mouthpiece stem is curved further adding to the anti-splash back effect whilst also providing ergonomic inhalation. Your lips are placed on a slightly concave and widened mouthpiece.
TIP: Due to the design and placement of the bowl (banger hanger style) I would also use this glass piece as a dab rig (for concentrates) by swapping out the bowl for an appropriate sized banger. Percolator will get pretty gunked up though.
CAM SERIES WITH LACE PERCOLATOR
GlassLab 303 creates water pipes in a range of series’. This one is part of the Cam Series, a range of colourful water pipes with some quite unique Lace Percolators. These percs come in a variety of shapes and this is the square option. A good percolator can greatly improve the experience particularly in regard to comfort and harshness. A must for many of my customers. There are pros and cons for most perc systems on the market. The only real downside in my opinion is the fact that the more intricate the design the more of a headache that cleaning can become. Cleaning regularly (plus soaking) will combat this.
A Lace Percolator is not one that I come across very often. It reminds me a little of an old microchip. This square perc sits at the very end of the down stem. A Lace Percolator is very intricate with many tiny slits. These slits sits along along 4 sides of the coloured square. Your large smoke bubble will be pushed through these slits and will be broken down into a vast multitude of smaller bubbles. More bubbles equals superior filtration and quite a visual feast. Filtration on this level will provide an airier, smoother and vastly more comfortable experience.
