We needed something to do while counting the minutes down to the Game of Thrones season 7 premiere, so to pass the time, we scoured Instagram to find glass fit for a queen Khaleesi. Not just any glass–dragon glass. Well, dragon-inspired glass. We don’t expect this stuff to kill White Walkers like the dragonglass obsidian of the Seven Kingdoms, but these cannabis pipes and water pipes do offer the magical ability to get you stonier than someone who caught the greyscale.
Whether or not you give two hecks about Game of Thrones, we invite you to bask in the majesty of these brilliant dragon-inspired glass pieces. Give these artists a follow on Instagram if you like what they’re creating!

Autumn is coming. Part dragon, part tree, this breathtaking piece of glass shows off incredible branching and woodgrain detail.
‘Elite Straight Fab”

Mothership Glass is known for creating pieces that are utterly out of this world, and this cosmic collaboration with JDZ is no exception. Abstractly resembling the tail and horns of some mystical space dragon, this elite and priceless piece might as well only exist in your dreams.

This piece is two wings away from being considered dragon-inspired, but that won’t stop us from sharing this serpentine brilliance with you. By the way, that double-helix snake in the center spins.

It’s unclear who or what is actually dancing with the dragon, but this piece of smokeable art created back in 2010 probably isn’t illustrating the Dance of the Dragons civil war in George R.R.’s saga.
This piece retains some dragon-like characteristics, but they’re somewhat hidden by the loudly grotesque personality championed by its artist, Salt. Its downstem appears to curl around the inside edge of the glass, lending another unique attribute to this already eye-catching piece.

This stunning piece could depict the Khaleesi herself riding on the back of one of her dragons. A collaboration piece from 2012, Dragon Slayer unites sharp jagged shapes with curved feminine ones to achieve balance and intrigue.

Is it a dragon? A pterodactyl? A satellite space bird? No one knows, but you can smoke out of its head and we love it.

Draconis Rex is just one of many dragons crafted by Mike Luna. This dragon is so elaborately detailed, I wouldn’t even know how to smoke out of it.
