Big Al's Smoke and Gifts

Whether you find yourself looking for a small bowl to hide in your dorm room or a Mothership Exosphere to park next to your Ferrari, Telegraph Avenue mainstay Big Al's has all your bases covered in attaining the best pipe possible for any tax bracket. Far and away the most exotic spread of glass in the East Bay, it's an absolute must-stop for any serious glass collector. Many of the world's premier cannabis cultivators and hash extractors drive south from the Emerald Triangle to peruse Big Al's cases in search of their next heater. And the glassblowing community clearly recognizes this enthusiasm. This past 4/20, the shop hosted a show by one of today's biggest artists, Bluegrass Glass, whose now-famous lamps are jumping in value faster than bitcoin. You'll also be able to get your hands on work by artists such as Sherbet Glass, Kevin Murray, and AKM.
