Pipemaking is one of the most important areas of glassmaking today. Many contemporary pipemakers got started during a time where marijuana was illegal throughout the United States and they created pipes that concealed their function. David Colton’s pipe references that very recent moment in pipemaking history with a nearly hidden function and its graffiti-like form illustrates the possibilities of this art form. Explore David’s work and see what else artists and designers are doing with glass today in “New Glass Now,” on view through January 5.
