The Del Mar Pipe is an exquisite sculptural cannabis pipe that exists as a piece of art in addition to its intended function. Handmade in Oregon by the Pursuits of Happiness, the seashell-shaped stoneware smoking vessel is cast from the shape of an actual found West Coast seashell. The piece boasts a semi-matte body, while the bowl and mouthpiece are glazed in glossy white for easy cleaning.
The Del Mar Pipe is currently retailing for $85 on design-driven cannabis e-commerce site Tetra, whose mission is focused on elevating the experience of recreational cannabis through sophisticated design. Other notable pipe designs by the Pursuits of Happiness available on Tetra are the Aero Pipe and the Voltaire Pipe.
The Del Mar Pipe is just one example of the emergence of such artistic smoking vessels, with many recreational users forming impromptu collections of such architectural pipes that easily serve as eye candy when displayed together in any stylized space.
