These pieces are individually designed by Empire’s network of highly skilled glassblowers. These accessories are fashioned in a torch flame by a process called lampworking. Made with only the finest imported glass from Europe and the United States, most of the colours of our pieces are custom mixed. Each piece is carefully made and annealed in a kiln at over 537 degrees Celsius which makes for a stronger, more durable product. The higher temperatures are also responsible for the rich natural colours characteristic of Empire Glassworks pieces.
Empire Glassworks have been able to create a full line of hand crafted smoking accessories –along with a limited line of designer creations that are distributed throughout the United States, Canada, Australia, & Europe. Their headquarters are located in Placentia, California, USA – one hour southeast of Los Angeles.
