KZA Glass started working with glass in Chicago during his high school years in the early 2000’s. He was interested in several approaches to art as a medium, but kept returning to glass. The relationship people had with their boro glass piece really got his interest. Like many glass artists outside of the Pacific NW, KZA is self taught. There aren’t glassblowing schools available in many parts of the US, or easy access to classes by working artists. He started working with color in boro and learning techniques he read about on GlassPipes, the old Org website for boro artists. Studying there with trial and error on the bench helped him develop his own style on his own terms.
Eventually he moved away from working with the array of boro colors, and in to clear boro with fuming as his main focus. He found various boro colors tended to run in trends, but fuming always seemed to look good and was always desirable outside of trends. Fuming provides almost limitless variety too. He continues to work on his intense color fuming style today in the Midwest.

There are two small fumicello marbles and a black backing fumicello cab disc on the side. Each fumed section in the tube has a black lip to separate. It’s a 10mm stem to a three hole diffy.

At 8.75 inches tall this is a true mini bong. 2.75 inches wide including the disc, and 4 inches deep with the bowl in. This is an amazing heady piece that is perfect for flower or concentrate. Add crushed ice to this and you have a 10mm flower bong that’s a pleasure to handle. Add room temp water and a banger and you have a 10mm concentrate rig. With all the color it looks fantastic either way. Intense color from KZA Glass!
