Cowboy Glass

Cowboy Glass is owned & operated by the acclaimed heady artist Chris Kerner. He applies his 10-years of experience in glass blowing to create a stunning array of pipes, glass accessories and other products.

The passion of this heady artist speaks through their work with heavy influences being drawn from sacred geometry and other glass-blowing greats who came before him.

If you are looking for a vibrant, unique and one-of-a-kind pipe that a friend won’t “accidentally” put in their pocket after a session – this is what you are looking for! The mesmerizing patterns of his work help to accent the beautiful curves and stand-out bowls.

Products created by Cowboy Glass are made by an artisan, but nonetheless, Chris Kerner maintains the values of being a practical pipe maker.

Coming not as a surprise, Chris Kerner got his start in pipe making from the allure of line-work tubing – getting lost in the endless patterns led him to become obsessed with the craft of pipe making. Specifically, he draws inspiration from the old gold & silver fume-style pieces of the past.

As a career heady artist, glass blower and professional pipe maker, Cowboy Glass operates out of a collaborative studio in Oregon where he is able to craft all of his products.

Shipping internationally, a piece created by Cowboy Glass will stand out in your overall glass collection or make an excellent first step into collecting hand-crafted glass & glass accessories.

Yep, I’ve seen that one before. The cowboys might have been clowning for the camera, but carrying your pipe upside down in your mouth was common in wet climates. If the tobacco’s packed right, the ashes won’t fall out.
