Beautiful hand-blown glass pipes by Arizona glass artist, Rich Creek. Most pipes (except bats) are signed by the artist.
Our customers LOVE these pipes and seek them out. Once you've had a Rich Creek handpipe, you're not going to go back to mass-produced glass. They are sturdy, and each one is truly one-of-a-kind.

Some terms to know:
Color-Patterned: Colors and patterns are most pronounced on the outside of the glass.
Inside-Out (I/O): Color and patterns are concentrated on the inside and it's like you're looking through the clear glass outer-shell at the beauty within.
Color-changing: These are the clear whitish, yellowish pipes that you can see into. As smoke goes through the pipe the pipe color changes appearance. You'll see purples and blues. The colors get more pronounced the more you use it. Don't worry though, when you clean it, it will go back to looking brandy-new again. Within the color-changing style, there are 3 general "looks":
Twisty: A pronounced twisty style to the glass
Fumed: The glass looks like fumes have been blown into it
Frit: Speckled pattern within the glass
Other unique variations that Rich offers in his pipes include:
Standard or chiseled mouthpiece
Bumps or no bumps on the bowl for comfort while holding
