With marijuana quickly on the move to become a luxury item in California, sophisticated stoners need to up their game when it comes to their smoking habits. That's where miwakjunior.com comes in. These handmade ceramic pipes are the Rolls-Royce of pipes. Available at various artisan pop-ups and craft fairs, these stoneware ceramic and porcelain pieces look nothing like the quintessential glass puffers sold at pot shops in Venice Beach. Instead, the pipes fashioned by L.A.-based Chilean artist Sebastian Boher are ovoids made from porcelain and stoneware clay, with a colorful glazed finish. Boher calls these UFO-like forms “connectors,” which is exactly how pipes were used throughout the centuries, as heady folks sat down together and shared a smoke and a story. Miwak Junior continues the tradition.
