Beta Glass-Petra XL COURTESY: BETA GLASS
I’m a fanatic for museum quality art glass. The kind that begs conversation over glasses of Barolo wine, caked with sediment from years resting in the cellar. Take me to Venice and turn me loose in the historic glass factories in Murano. They have been hand-blowing fine art glass for hundreds of years in Venice, Italy. I see much symmetry in the highest quality glass designed for the cannabis industry as in the very rare hand-blown, Murano glass. The colors may be a bit different from piece to piece in cannabis glass design, but insofar as the curves and bends of the glass, the new styles of glassware for cannabis rigs mimic the fine glass art that I’ve seen in Italy. Do you think today’s glass blowers studied with the old masters in Italy? I wouldn’t doubt that they’d consider my compliment of their craft, one of the “highest” honors. The Beta Glass Rigs that I was sent for review are as intriguing, in my view, as a several-hundred-year-old Murano glass chandelier.
