Default so got any interesting bowl ideas??

my wife and i just found a really cool place to buy ceramic clay (cone 10, high fire, ceramic, without grog) from. I told the man at the store that I was going to be using the clay for hookah bowls, primarily, and he said this style of clay would work beautifully. He was saying it could be heated to about 850 F after it had been fired without any distortion, making it a prime candidate for hookah bowls.

$15 for 50 lbs. So, anyone wanna see any special bowls made, or is anyone interested in a specific style of bowl that would be home made?

Post your ideas, we are about to get started with mini funnels. We will make a few, get them fired and I'll smoke multiple bowls out of each one just to make sure that they are good to go.

Cheers.

This sounds hella interesting!

50 pound bowl?!?! Damn the hookah hookah is gonna break right after putting it on lol just joking

How about some designs on the bowl that is related to the tradition of hookah and the places where the are known most?

It would be cool to see a bowl that is an egyptian pyramid...But its gonna be a lil hard putting the foil on ^_^

i always wondered if a funnel would work better if it was wider and flatter but still held 50 grams.

I would love a funnel bowl that held like 15-20 G without the need of a mod. In fact you wouldn't even need to factor in the the size of the mod. I would love if it was glazed blue and white with a little gold too.

Check it, here they are, hand made, no pottery wheels. we go old school.

Keep in mind, they wont be perfectly straight. They are being done by hand and hand only. Hope you enjoy, this is pre fired. I'll post pics up in a week or so of post first firing.






And one for kicks:

Thats what happens when you get hella bored waiting for your Chocolate Molten cake at Chilis.

What if you made a Phunnel bowl that instead of having an open circle at the top, was closed, but had slits near the base for air. Basically a built in modded Phunnel bowl. Would that work?

I think I understand what you are talking about, but then again, wouldnt that defeat part of the purpose of a phunnel? to contain the juices without havign them drip down the stem?

I get the feeling that bowl was intended for traditional tobacco forms where you place the coals directly on the smokeable. the idea of using foil on that bowl seems ridiculous.

I'd be interested in an extra small phunnel too. I love my phunnel, but it goes through shisha way too quickly, even reusing the same bowl two or three times.

The integrated mod is an interesting idea as well. A mod is a glass piece that sits over the hole at the top of the phunnel with holes on the sides on the bottom. The idea is that it prevents any air from coming in at the top of the phunnel, resulting in greater flavour.
If you made the stem like a normal phunnel, sealed the top, and put some big holes on the side of the stem, it might work pretty well. It'd probably take some experimentation to get the holes right though.

Bromake a bowl where the outside looks like a flower or a bowl of flames.
