So we report on makers all the time, some who do very cool things in the Bay Area. Summerland, however, is taking our ceramics cake with their VERY chic all white water bongs. We first discovered these artistically sound bong friends at Westcoast Craft Fair — hoards of people rummaged their booth and we couldn't even get close enough to pick one up. The design factor of this particular toking accessory would be hands down the all white facade, minimalist--it's your time to rejoice.
Summerland is best described as a lost hideaway for sun-seekers, wave worshipers and coastal daydreamers. The Chongo (pictured above) is nothing super revolutionary in design - you're not looking at the next trend in bong design and that's what makes it fantastic; it's instantly recognizable but an updated version—like your childhood home with new tiling. It's pure white, ceramic design became an instant hit with design enthusiasts and stoners alike. All Summerland pieces come with high-grade silicone grommets that are super easy to clean. The Chongo is minimal and sleek and deserves a place on your shelf.
And the man behind the smoke, Liam Devowski Kaczmar, an award-winning director & art director who makes well... bongs--sorry misses K. "I was inspired to create smoking devices for the aesthetic connoisseur; a bong that you didn't need to hide when you had company over" he tells us, "I created Summerland in 2011 with a simple ceramic apple pipe, now dubbed the "Fruit Fantasy".
Of course, these babies aren't cheap (starting at $75) but for your friends (or yourself) who loves to indulge in a minimal treat should really consider one or two.
