Hand Blown in the USA
Experience the Rich Clarity, Color and Depth of our NEW Artisan Glass Premium Hookah Base Series
It's with great excitement that I bring you the newest product in our Shishaware lineup Mason Artisan Glass. We are proud to bring you the first hand blown in America artisan glass hookah base! We have hired a local artist onto our team whose work is featured in downtown glass art galleries across the United States and whose work ranges from hundreds of dollars per piece into the thousands. He brings 20 years of experience in functional glass arts.
Each piece is made from USA glass made for artisanal use, the depth, clarity and quality is visibly different then that of overseas production glass pieces you may be accustomed too seeing on the market today. These are pieces that really must be seen in person to truly appreciate the quality.
Until now premium hookah base options have been limited with only the same couple manufacturers available. If you are like us you want something truly different and unique. Just as we invested our time and energy into bringing you custom modular premium hookah handles years ago to allow you to customize your setup to your own personal tastes, so begins our foray into the premium hookah base market!
Each production run will be small batch with limited and unique pieces. This is not a production line and it takes our artist time to hand blow and finish each and every one of these pieces to guarantee high quality. So we may not be able to meet full demand at the beginning but we hope to release batches in a consistent manner.
We have designed each piece to compliment both traditional and modern stems alike.
*Highly Recommended to use a silicone mod grommet with all of our Artisan Bases for best fit you can find ours here: Silicone Base Grommet
Please see size chart below if any questions about fitment
FITS MOST STEMS (DEFAULT)- We designed our bases to fit universally as many popular hookahs both traditional and modern hookahs as we could. You can assume they fit all standard size modern and traditional stems with downstems up to 8.5 inches Keep in mind mini portable hookahs will require a mini base, if the pics do not say anything about fitting mini portable hookah do not assume it does
FITS STEM UNDER 8.5 in- Some bases are designed shorter and we will mention this in the picture, these will fit most modern stems and some traditional stems that have downstems under 8.5in if you aren't sure how to measure your down stem scroll down to see a pic with a ruler next to downstem
I just received my Mason Artisan base a few days ago; all I can say is WOW! I own two Boho Czech bases and this blows them out of the water. The quality of the beautiful purple glass is superior to all others. I can’t believe it’s handmade; the precision of the design is nothing less than perfection. I will only pair my hookah stems with an Artisan bases going forward. Bravo !!!
I thought i would start out by saying everything i have gotten from mason shishaware be it bowls, hoses, or vases have been of superb quality. These vases are no different. Super thick, hand made glass vases from an American glass blower. Each piece is different. Each piece is a unique design and shape. But what all 4 of my vases now how in common, is their high grade quality. And they are stunning once you get them in your hands. One thing that pictures don't really do them justice. I have Boho vases, I have Russian vases, I have Egyptian vases, I have old Syrian vases, and I even have a knock of Chinese vase or 2 laying around. But, none of them even come close to the build quality and the looks of these mason artisan glass vases. Nothing!
I have 3 of these bases already and can't wait to add more to the collection. The quality is light-years better then most of the bases from China or Russia you see on the market today. I love supporting handcrafted American art work and this is no exception!
