mobius bongs

California

Designed & built

From Scratch

Hello. My name is John M/Circle, the owner and creator behind Mobius. I’ve been a full-time glassblower for 20 years. Mobius has been my sole focus for the past 11.

Maybe it’s a deep desire to learn, maybe it’s because I want things done a particular way, maybe it’s because in the end I’m more creative with a broad base of knowledge and experience, maybe it’s because of my introverted wiring, maybe I just have control issues. However it may be, I have a “from scratch” mentality that permeates everything I do.

A little over a decade ago, before Mobius, I decided to figure out how to use a glass lathe to make a “scientific style” water pipe. By that point I’d already made hand-pipes for 10 years, but I knew lathe work was a completely different skill, and it intrigued me. I dove in head first. My initial attempts were terrible, but I persisted. At the time, I’d never actually seen a “scientific” glass pipe made in person, so I decided I would have to figure it out.

The decision to teach myself lathe-work presented many challenges. how to blend the innovative bench made color techniques I’d been using to make handmade pipes, into the tight tolerances of scientific work. This lead to exploring product design, sandblasting, glass beveling, furnace work, shop design, graphic design, photography, video, website, and my biggest challenge to date, borosilicate color making.

Making “things” for a living is deeply rewarding. There is nothing like the feeling of designing an object on paper and then assembling it out of clear glass, to hold in three-dimensional space. But to then….

Crush clear quality-control rejects into tiny pieces of glass with a hammer, blend existing colors and mixing raw metal oxides into the crushed glass to then cook it all down in a furnace to create a completely unique color. Next, pull the liquid colored glass out of the furnace into hollow tubing, cut that tubing down and chuck it into my lathe to melt with torches to form into a full colored pipe. Design sandblasting logos within Adobe Illustrator, print negatives out and expose photo-resistive film to then etch the item. Photograph, edit and then share the photos. And finally, box up the item and send it off to its new home.

These are unique objects made from scratch with great care.

For years, I have done my best to remain private in the connected world we all live in. Even within the tightly knit “pipe industry” I pretty much kept my head down and did my own thing. I am quiet and simple, and the internet is neither of those things. Now I feel it is time for me to tell a bit of my story, add a little context about Mobius and present my company in a way that reflects the way I approach my work. Thank you for poking around my website. And thank you for your support.

Möbius Bong For Oil / Wax / Dabs (by Blaze Glass)

The Möbius Bong For Oil / Wax / Dabs by Blaze Glass is a fantastic “oil rig” for dabbing cannabis concentrates.

This Möbius Bong by Blaze Glass is equipped with a built-in Möbius Percolator, that got it’s name from the resemblance to the famous “Möbius Strip”. This bong is unique in its design which makes it a true pleasure to the eye, but it also has a positive effect on the quality of the smoke. The smoke enters the bong through the fixed downstem, which has a “recycle chamber”. This is where the smoke is cooled and filtered the first time, by the water that basically gets pumped around when you take a hit (hence the name “recycle”). Next, the smoke goes underneath the hollow round foot through a small smoke tube: this is a very unique design, that will be regarded by most stoners a degree of awe when they see it.

After that, the smoke enters the “Möbius” Percolator, where the smoke is once again exposed to the cooling and filtering water. In this percolator the smoke gets spread around very effectively, so that the water can do its job very well one last time. As soon as the smoke gets out of the percolator, it travels up through the bent mouthpiece, into your lungs. Experience the excellent smoke this bong provides for yourself, and we surely won’t have to convince you (because the bong will). But what we can tell you, is that this is absolutely one of the best dab rigs to enjoy your precious concentrates in this price range!

The Möbius Bong for Oil, Wax and Dabs is made of the strongest and most durable borosilicate glass. This glas is often used in laboratories; so if it can withstand the chemical reactions, there is surely no need to worry about the water and smoke in your bong! The advantages of bongs made of borosilicate glass (“scientific glass”, “laboratory glass”) is that they are much more heat- and scratch-resistant than bongs made of “normal” glass (soft glass), and you don’t have to be afraid of any signs of wear showing in the glass. If you’re looking for a strong, wear-resistant dab rig, we will always recommend you to look for a borosilicate glass rig.

The German bong manufacturer Blaze Glass is famous for its fantastic bongs at relatively low prices, and this Möbius bong surely is no exception. A true Mercedes among bongs, real German quality!

We only sell genuine Blaze Glass dab rigs!
