What are Fumed and dichroic glass pipes?

11 Jun 2023

First Fumed and Dichroic are both referring to the process in making the Glass Hand Pipes.

    Fumed glass are invent by some hard head Around 1990 Bob Snodgrass,  fumed glass was a result of a happily accident  that changed the smoking world forever.  He was blowing glass and one hand, holding silver, got too close to the flame torch.  Voila!  Color changing glass was born and the “Godfather of Glass leaves a legacy in the forever changed world of glass.

     Why does Fumed glass pipe always change colors ? the short answer, they are not , they do not change colors, the way you see it maybe look different in the light,  those are the colorful effect illusion created by the glass dark resin layers. As a fumed pipe fills with resin the colors pop more against the dark background.  A pipe against a white background will appear yellow whereas it would look blue against a black background. the most common material use to make fumed glass are gold or silvers.

      so What are Dichroic glass pipe ? according to Wiki the dichroic material is a modern composite non-translucent glass that is produced by stacking layers of metal oxides which give the glass shifting colors depending on the angle of view, causing an array of colors to be displayed as an example of thin-film optics.
    in another one they are so much alike fumed glass, but the material the glass bolower use to make the glass are different,  the popular choice are titanium, chromium, aluminium, zirconium, or magnesium; or silica . compare the fumed glass that use gold or silver, Dichroic glass pipe are more looks metallic
for exmaple something like this, would be dichroic glass pipe
Dioxide proceed dichroic glass pipe.   you can compare it to the fumed glass pipe, which all fumed glass either use gold or silver, you can see the tiny details on those lines, the white shinning dots are silver layers. which is make the pipe pretty cool.
