Default CLAY HOOKAH

guys i got too excited after looking at all those clay threads

im gonna start building a new hookah tomorrow from clay

CANT WAIT!!!!!!!!!!!!LOOOL

any weird ideas ?

what kinda add-ons should i add ?

im already thinking of something that comes out of the stem where i can put like the tong and anything else

GOD IM EXCITED !

edit :

i came across this

http://www.hookahpro.com/forum/showthread.php?t=5999

should i go with it ?

i like the look , but will the fact the stem is that long change anything when it comes to smoke , flavor?

edit:

ok another thing

for the part where the base attaches to the stem , in a normal hookah you know how its made , you rotate it down ...

i cant do that , what other way can i do it without having any air leaks ?

if people arent responding to your thread, bumping it is just rude....

that being said, i think that this is you hookah, and your expiriment and you should just do what you want and then post a thread telling us all about it and post up pics for our viewing pleasure.

Atleast disguise the bump by adding another question, thought, or idea. That way it's not completely pointless lol.

Give it a shot. I foresee problems with cleaning it, absorbing smoke making it retain tastes, the clay itself having a flavour of its own... etc

I don't think clay is the ideal hookah material, but there seems to be others here that work with it more than I have so I'll reserve my judgement!

Just think of what it would be like to eat your cereal out of an unglazed bowl....then think that that is what the base/vase will be like

i think it would be cool but its not going to be easy. i would glaze every inside part.

if you cannot throw clay on a wheel i will promise this will not work as well as you want it to. if you are just starting to throw then i would hold off, the shapes i would expect you to go with will take you a while to be able to do

Yeah, I don't see this working out well. You could do a base made out of clay. But an entire hookah? The stem would be hard to do, not impossible, but fairly hard.
And as said, make sure you glaze the whole thing. It will make for easier clean up and will help keep out the taste and stuff. Atleast just do a clear coat covering all parts.

lol cool idea.

I imagine that it'd be wicked heavy... so in the process of making, try to not make it very top heavy, in an attempt to avoid the stem cracking due to the stress of the weight
