If You’re Not Smoking Out of a Unicorn Bowl, You’re Doing It Wrong

Who here hasn’t smoked weed out of some questionable makeshift vessels in their youth? Luckily for our dignity and our lungs, the modern cannabis connoisseur has more options than ever when it comes to choosing how they consume. Though many state legislatures are still pretty square, makers in weed-friendly states are reinventing the lowly bowl, and Seattle ceramics artist Katie Marks has invented the ultimate means of getting high in the form of smokable unicorn, kitten, and geode pipes.

“With the full-on legalization in Washington state, I knew that I wanted to be part of this weed revolution. I want to make pieces that you don’t want to hide in a drawer, but instead display proudly in your home. De-stigmatizing marijuana is extremely important to me. It helps so many people, and being able to offer something unique and beautiful to enjoy this popular pastime is, really, the driving force behind why I make them,” Marks tells Creators.

Marks’s practice isn’t exclusively limited to fantastical ceramic bowls, either; she also sells mesmerizing marbled mugs and other pottery on her Etsy site. Each creation is painstakingly hand-molded out of clay and glazed with gold and pastel pigments. The artist has a robust Instagram following and uses her online platform to showcase her process and update customers on new products.

Smoking weed is usually associated with grotty bongs or ungainly-looking, badly rolled spliffs.

But it doesn’t have to be that way, as Seattle-based ceramics artist Katie Marks is proving.

She’s completely reinvented the means of getting high by creating a range of smokable unicorn, kitten and geode pipes.

‘I want to make pieces that you don’t want to hide in a drawer, but instead display proudly in your home,’ she tells Creators.

Her collection of crying kitties and cute unicorn pipes are all part of what she calls a ‘weed revolution’ – which also includes creating the most magical ceramic bongs we’ve ever seen.

But it’s not just weed apparatus that she makes.

Kaite also designs beautiful ceramic mugs, bowls and vases.

She says that a lot of her current work is inspired by minerals and geology.

‘I love the play between taking something that the earth does so beautifully and adding my human element to it. I am inspired by my surroundings.

‘As a someone who grew up in Seattle I have lived in the gloom of the overcast sky and week-long rain showers for most of my life. I wanted to show the beauty I see in the gloom. This city is teeming with creativity and I find myself wandering around in a dream like state.’
