    Kraken Glass Water Pipe

    The Kraken Glass Water Pipe by Trident stands between 14 and 16 inches tall. It is fabricated on 44mm wide by 4mm wall thickness clear pyrex. After the classic bubble base is blown, the glass is fumed with silver for Blue and Green color change. The mouthpiece is flared and the mid section offers an ice indent and an old school Mercury Seal joint. Each piece offers a matching color bowl and a life like glass sculpture of an Octopus wrapped around the neck. Many of the lathe operators and tube arters come from a large lamp working tree with it's roots in the soil of Jerome Baker Designs. You can see the inspirations from JBD in not only the art and decoration, but also in the downstem. It used to be that a hole was popped in the midsection of water pipes. After the proper hole size was attained, the hole was reinforced to accept a rubber grommet. All of that process still happens, but modern craft method at Trident takes its lead from scientific lamp working and employs a Mercury Seal by grinding the inner wall to accept a glass on glass downstem. The lower profile of the Mercury Seal joint on the She Sells Sea Shells Glass Water Pipe does not stick out like most joints. This is important because it is much more work to make the joint much less susceptible to breakage. Another functionally superior extra step is a hand blown diffuser. Wet saws create intense residual stress around the slits the machines grind into the glass to make diffusers. By nature, hand blown round hole diffusers are fire polished and annealed to maximize strength and long term durability.
