The Bong You Can Put On Your Coffee Table
Candy Relics rethinks the modern piece.
So long are the days when coffee tables served exclusively to store boring, oversized books. Now, you’ll be hard-pressed to enter a curated home without spotting candles, photos, succulents, vases, and knick-knacks on display. When it comes to accessorizing, we say the more, the merrier.
While the Portland-based brand makes a wide collection of clutch porcelain objects for your home, Candy Relics has one design we’re particularly jazzed about: the Honey Bear Bubbler.
In layman’s terms, it’s a ceramic porcelain bong. But in our eyes, it just might be the most beautiful piece we’ve seen to date (and we've seen many as writers embedded in the weed world.) Available in five different colors—black, blue, lavender, mango, pink, turquoise, and yellow—the bubblers are cast from discarded bear-shaped bottles of honey. As an added touch of luxury, the bowl, lip, and removable lid are all glazed with 22-karat gold. The Honey Bear Bubbler is the kind of bong you'd be proud to show your mom.
As a business, Candy Relics values the art of giving old materials new life. The Portland-based company specializes in handcrafted pieces that are as functional as they are beautiful. The store’s designer and founder, David Price, draws upon his rich background in ceramics to reinvent objects that would typically be discarded—just look at his found wood jewelry mounts, revamped motor oil bottles, and porcelain pineapple cups as examples.
