Cannabis lovers can combine both worlds with this week’s addition of Touch Of Glass, as we’re exploring pieces inspired by the most popular superheroes of our time.

People are constantly arguing about which hero is better: Batman or Superman. When it comes to their cannabis pieces, I’d have to say Batman wins hands down. This crazy cool bong might be simple and clear on the outside, but the inside details are amazing.

Batman’s head is perfectly formed out of glass and inserted inside the shaft of the bong, making for an endless conversation topic. His famous bat signal is incorporated in the stem and etched in the glass near the mouthpiece. With so much detail and work put into this piece, there’s no doubting who the strongest superhero is.

5. Iron Man

Sandblasted pieces just have such a simple, elegant look about them; nothing really compares. When etchings are included, the piece is taken to another level.

Iron Man is the perfect superhero to be etched on glass, as his facial and armor details are less intricate than Batman or Superman. The etching comes out smooth and clean, leaving users with a one-of-a-kind masterpiece.

6. The Hulk

Unlike an etching or separate molding, This Hulk bong incorporates the character’s face right into the glass. Precision is needed to create such a detailed piece. Master craftsmen work each facial feature slowly into the molten glass, ensuring symmetry.

The corkscrew accents on the stem piece also enhance the bong’s eye-catching appearance. To top off this fine specimen, a matching Hulk-green bowl piece, deep enough to deliver a monstrous high.
