Charles Pearlman, aka Omakase Glass, hails from Portland, Oregon. Charlie first learned the art of glass blowing at Free State Glass in Lawrence, Kansas in 2001. We at Smokin Js found Charlie through one of our favorite studios, Synthesis Glass . He shares our values within the hand blown glass industry for the fact that he cares about each piece he makes, and he understands that the passion and craftsmanship is all about the end smoker who spends their hard earned money on his piece. At Smokin Js our number one focus is to provide American made glass pipes that have good karma from the torch to your hand; Omakase Glass fits into our line-up nicely:)
Charlie draws his inspiration on the torch from "nature, music, and the almighty dollar." He is a realist that loves the fact that his passion for glass blowing can provide himself with a viable business to support himself. Charlie said, "I take pride in every piece I make and know that this is very personal to who will receive it, and even though we've never met, I love knowing you love my glass. Thank you for your support of independent artists, be well."
Omakase sets itself apart from other glass blowers because he hunts down some of the most exotic and unique colors to work with; and he doesn't just use these exotic expensive colors as accents, he blows full water pipe bowls and hand pipes with full color. We recently selected colors like unobtanium, experimental green, purple lilac, pink slyme, alien tech, baller tech, and serendipity. Check out the selection of Omakase Glass products. At most stores and web sites these prices would be 30-50% higher. When you buy your glass at Smokin Js, you aren't just buying a brand, you are buying people.
