Any followers of my Instagram will know that art (particularly street art) is one of my obsessions. Pair that with my obsession with destigmatising the usage (legal) of medicinal herbs and you will understand my excitement over the K Haring Glass Range. My first delivery arrived this week and we held an unboxing ceremony so we could all ooh and aah over the contents.
Keith Haring was (dies 1990, aged 31) an American street artist and a social activist, massively famous in the 1980 for his iconic and vibrant artwork. He began by drawing in New York Subways and sadly was arrested for vandalism on a few occasions. Undeterred he continued on and started tackling some of societies biggest issues of the days via his artwork. AIDS awareness, gay rights and drug usage were some of the causes he believed in quite strongly and he used his artwork to educate. A vibrant visionary who used broad, bold strokes and groundbreaking imagery to spread messages of peace, love, equality, and compassion. Haring united New York City street culture with pop art to create his own iconic visual language that continues to engage and excite.
Now that the art is out of the way lets talk spoons. Spoon pipes are one of the most popular style of pipes and you can probably figure out why they called it a spoon. Apart from being shaped like the humble spoon these pipes have a built-in bowl portion, a recessed hole where your herb resides. They are generally an all-in-one pipe. To be exacting this is a hammer-style pipe, a variation of the spoon design with a long stem extending directly out from the bowl and ending in a mouthpiece. A pretty durable piece made from heavy duty (and heat resistant) borosilicate glass. The hand applied art portions are also resistant to heat.
First let’s start with weight, this pipe is extremely light and will easily travel with you. A flat (wide rimmed) base with hand applied, heat resistant artwork on the base (inner and outer base) as well as on the neck. This pipe will sit flat wherever you place it. The bowl is quite deep and roomy. A carb hole is ergonomically located to the side of the bowl and is designed to provide superior airflow. The mouthpiece is reinforced, flat and flares out for easy inhales.
Measuring: 1.8” W x 4.3” L x 1.5” H
TIP: If you like a smaller hole in the base of your bowl I recommend taking a look at the Smojo screen.
BOROSILICATE GLASS PLUS GREAT FLAVOUR
As already mentioned, this is an extremely durable glass piece, now it is still glass so its durability will be limited so please don’t throw it around. Borosilicate glass is the gold standard for heavy duty glass whilst also being heat resistant. Inferior glass may become unstable at high temperatures and can easily crack. The compact nature of this spoon will further add to its durability. The pureness of the glass used coupled with a design that allows for superior airflow will provide you with a flavour filled smoking experience.
