Cool Illadelph BongsFriday, 27 November 2015
There are a lot of cool bong makers out there blowing some really cool glass and constantly looking to take their skills to the next level. When you talk about skilled glass blowers, one group of people you can’t help but mention in the first sentence is Illadelph. Formed in 2002, these guys are dedicated to creating high-end glass art that’s functional and beautiful. They really emphasize the art in their practice when it comes to their philosophy and their actual products and it shows with every piece they make. Every single one is expertly crafted and oozes originality and style. In this post, we’ll be looking at some recent and really cool Illadelph bongs to show you just what these guys are capable of!
Kevin Murray Collaboration
This piece is a collaboration between Illadelph and Kevin Murray and is a technical
masterpiece. The bong itself breaks down into pieces for easier storage and
transportation, the pieces are all perfectly crafted with nice rounded edges, thick
glass where it matters and some really nice glass work done on the coil and the
diffuser in the beaker base. The real icing on the cake is the color work, which is
nothing short of stunning. The execution of the color work is not only precise and
accurate, but insanely creative and makes for an amazing looking piece.
Lou Ferrigno Incredible Hulk Pyramid Coil
This awesome piece really lets you know that details really matter to the people
at Illadelph. Between the picture of the hulk on the bottom of the beaker and
the front of the bong, the design on the bowl that matches the top of the tube
and the silhouette of Dr. Banner and the Hulk on the back, this piece is a work of
art fit for even the most picky fans of the giant green monster.
Red Ailan Rig
This piece is another collaboration, this time spawning an alien inspired creation
with the alien smoking a bong hanging out behind a custom coil. This piece show
s a really amazing technical expertise form the coil creation down to the alien with
his own little bong. It’s a really interesting piece and worthy of just about any
This custom piece features your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man from his days spend
in the Venom suit. This piece features some really cool design elements, especially the
web design on Spidey’s mask. If you’re a fan of the web-slinger, this is a great piece to
own….that is, if you can afford it.
This piece is a custom piece done by Illadelph themselves and might just be our favorite.
This piece is nothing short of mind blowing from the Egyptian hieroglyphs to the fetus
suspended in the coil, this piece demands and earns your attention and inspires thought
and conversation. It’s the perfect thing to look at after a session…or before. It’s just
amazing to look at.
