christopher loomis: provisional smoking devices

Provisional Smoking Devices
Wood and metal
$20 – $45

These are an edition of twenty-five smoking devices made from wood and metal scraps from around my studio. With a nod to the famous potato pipe design, I have attempted to elevate the materials into a more sculptural and longer lasting product.
