Trident Glass: Red Octopus Glass Bong

Trident Glass has done it again with this Red Octopus Glass Bong. This American company is located in Oregon with a team consisted of these amazing lampworkers: Adam Armstrong, Dana Dickinson, Drake Masuda, Shane White, Heath Harmon. This hand-made piece of art includes a handcrafted and painted Red Octopus with a matching colored mouthpiece. Trident is known for their 50mm standard tube bongs with a single hole push bowl, 14mm male, and multi-hole down stems, 14mm female; and they generally stand up to 15 inches tall. This piece has heavy gold fume throughout the whole piece.
