Ceramic Bongs for the Modern Smoker
What are Ceramic bongs?
Ceramic bongs are bongs made of ceramic, which is clay, a material you're likely familiar with.
What’s the Purpose of a Ceramic Bong?
They look nicer than your average stoner-looking glass and can be stored in the open, rather than hidden from disapproving eyes. These bongs often resemble a piece of art more than a smoking tool. Not that they don’t’ look cool, these bongs simply look more modern and help to make a statement that you smoke as a hobby, not as a lifestyle.
Ceramic Bongs vs Glass
There isn’t much a difference besides durability, and a ceramic bong isn’t going to be that much stronger than a glass bong. It will be stronger than the 4 foot glass bong we sell, but not our 30inch 9mm thick bong. The main benefit of a ceramic bong is the style.
Are Ceramic Bongs Safe?
Ceramic bongs are safe if they’re made with lead-free materials. This isn’t much of a problem ordering from well-known manufacturers, but you should still watch out. Don’t buy any ceramic pieces from Alibaba or other untrustworthy sources.

Vintage Ceramic Bongs
It’s the 21st century, but that doesn’t mean we can’t throw things back to the good old days. It’s interesting that ceramic bongs have adopted the old vintage look, rather than the more modern flashy standard of today. There are of course ceramic bongs designed to attract attention with garish design, but most are a classic style with subtle colors and simple design.
