Inline percolators resemble the tree with one larger arm sealed inside a jacketed Dewar. The Inline contains slits and is usually found in the first chamber of the water pipe. The Inline can be made with slits of varying diameter causing increased diffusion and massive visually entertaining bubbly action. Coined ‘Harmonic’ the action resembles waves of bubbles similar to a sound wave pattern. The glass artist ‘Hops’ is credited along with ‘Toro’ for origination of terminology and design.

And also as always (for those who’ve never been) they’ll be a RAFFLE for one of HOPS pieces…..COME THRU!!!!!!!
