Jem Pipes 

by Jewelnotes Glassworks

Made in Calgary

$100 to $150


Most glass pipes are hollow but this stylish model by Made in Alberta Awards alum Michelle Atkinson is made from a solid piece of cast glass. The kiln-fired pieces have a heft and durability that seems unlikely from a glass product. End-to-end, it takes Atkinson about five days to make one slab, which is then cut into seven pipes.
