A celebration of heady glass culture

Art of Glass celebrates heady glass artistry as a key component of cannabis history and consumption culture. From Operation Pipe Dreams to present-day search and seizure, paraphernalia has been denied its recognition as true cultural artifacts of cannabis. We are collaborating with artists to shed light on the nuances of working with this medium and how it has shaped the industry.

With Art of Glass, Calyx Containers hopes to illustrate the importance of quality glass in the consumption experience while also raising funds for non-profit organizations that support communities impacted by judicial cannabis inequities.
