Illuminati Glass Company
Quality Glass Made Where it Should Be
Illuminati Glass stands out in the world of unconventional, stylish and inventive glass water pipes and dab rigs.
Illuminati pipes are as eye-catching as they are functional. Their pipes blur the line between “water pipe” and “modern art”. Utilizing art in water pipes is nothing new, but Illuminati is one of the companies that continually takes it to another level.
From small, detailed sculptures in the chambers to spinning sprockets around the neck, Illuminati Glass is constantly finding new ways to add style to pipes full of the latest in percolation and recycler technology. Headquartered just east of New York City, Illuminati Glass takes the name of their distinct brand of imaginative pipes from one of the most misunderstood and debated groups in American culture: the mysterious Illuminati.
This name adds a sense of mystery to an already mystical brand. One series in the Illuminati line deals with time. In a single piece, the design of the pipes demonstrate the constructs of time as well as the deconstruction of the mechanisms of time, offering a reminder of the limitations we live within, while at the same time offering a glimpse into the concept of limitlessness. This is exactly what Illuminati Glass is trying to do with their functional art: Elevate Your Mind to Inner Realms and Spaces of Higher Consciousness. And so far it’s working.
You Know What Time It Is
Smokingoutlet.net sent me the Illuminati Glass Co. “Grandfather Clock” water pipe!
Right away when I got it out of the very protective shipping wrap I was happy. The pipe was thick, heavy, and the detail was amazing! I can honestly say I love this piece! Lets first get into the details of the pipe:

This pipe is made from clear high quality borosilicate glass.
