Default Foil? Screw that, ceramic screen!

So I asked my friend to make a phunnel bowl for my dad's gift (egyptian brass hookah and bohemian vase to match) and he made one, and a ceramic screen for it. The screen is very thin and its the first run, hes going to be making a lot more, and hopefully thicker ones. Here are some pics.

Hah awesome. But isn't the ceramic touching the tobacco? Did it burn and get harsh easily?

Wow, that's cool! He should make one that sits on top of the bowl. So that it doesn't touch the tobacco. I want one!

Sweeet.
Those look like they would trap heat better than the glass ones.

Didn't get harsh at all? I would think a lot of heat gets trapped and touches the shisha and it would get harsh.
Nice invention, when you start producing them let me know I would love to start selling them. I have got to stay more active in the forums to hear about all the cool inventions. We are working on one too right now, when it is halfway completed I'll send it out to you guys to try out and let me know what you think and how to improve. I lvoe forums due to all the opinions, it's awesome to get fast feedback on products. I will keep everyone posted on that.

That is pretty cool scoop. You might have stumbled on a nice concept for an actuall decent screen lol. Metal ones suck, I haven't heard about the glass ones, but these ceramics are showing some potential. Good luck perfecting it.

Thanks guys.

TexasHookah, it wasnt harsh at all. This is pretty much how we set up the hookah with foil, we pack to the brim with all the tobacco anyway

That seems like a very nice idea. What bowls have you tried making them for thus far?

Would there be any problem with durability after so many uses? I think its a bad ass I idea, hopefully it all works out to y'all's advantage and you can market it.

id imagine as long as it doesn't break while cleaning it, it will last forever (unless broken by accident somehow)

It looks like one of those crackers from the Catholic Church that you eat and is made of Jesus!
