The world’s biggest, baddest bong is being made in Las Vegas, Nevada, courtesy of Cannabition, an immersive cannabis-themed art museum opening up right here in the heart of Downtown LV. Sin City is notorious for its larger than life charisma and style and now, as legal cannabis floods the nation, it’s no surprise that the ‘city of vices’ will spend 2018 breaking bong records and making cannabis news headlines.
Cannabition’s Campaign for the World’s Largest Bong
To tackle this enormous task, Cannabition teamed up with Jason Harris of Jerome Baker Designs and the artists at Chihuly Glass, to take water pipes to the next level with this massive installation. Their plan to create a 24 ft. bong launched on April 20, when more than a dozen artists spent the day blowing the first sections of Bongzilla.
Considering that Jerome Baker’s normal-sized bongs sell in galleries for around $20,000, this could very well be the most expensive (and heaviest) piece of glass art ever blown!
Bongzilla takes its place at Cannabition, the Cannabis Museum
The bong will be featured at the end of Cannabition’s series of immersive cannabis-themed art exhibits. Not only will be this piece be custom made for the museum; it will be completely functional. Though public consumption is still illegal in Nevada, the team behind Cannabition dreams of creating the first legal, state-approved cannabis lounge.
But smoker beware! unless you’ve got the lungs of a whale, chances are you won’t make it through a full rip. If you do, don’t forget your space helmet – because you’re headed to the stratosphere.
Making cannabis art history, one piece at a time
Blowing glass is a very difficult and complex process. Doing it on a scale of this size is nothing short of a monumental artistic, and even scientific, undertaking. Completing this piece will be a historic cannabis accomplishment. Jerome Baker Designs will have to use custom-built jigs, unique materials, and molds, and even fork and scissor lifts to pull the project off. Once it’s finished, it will be a marijuana magnum-opus.
The inspiration for this project came from a desire to do something never-before accomplished – a trademark of the Las Vegas cannabis art museum. The immersive art museum in Las Vegas is set to open in Neonopolis at the Fremont Experience in September of 2018.
