About Us

Our journey began in 2003 with Chad Zindroski, a student and artist who envisioned a fusion of sleek design and functional excellence in affordable, high-quality pipes and accessories. In a time dominated by pipes, which focused more on external artistic quality than function, Chad revolutionized the industry with his streamlined designs and uniquely perforated downstem, creating the first scientific hammer pipe - a milestone in Purr Glass’s legacy.

At Purr Glass, we prioritize blending functional and beautiful designs, crafted to be enjoyed every day. What sets us apart is our commitment to not only providing exceptional products but also offering glass repair, custom glass making services, and even sharing our passion for glassblowing through teaching. We take great pride in offering these unique glassblowing services to our community.

In our early days (2003-2011), we operated locally, mainly within California, in a door-to-door manner due to conservative laws related to glass pipes. However, Purr Glass took a significant leap in 2012, participating in our first-ever national trade show, which marked the beginning of our expansion. Our product line has grown to include scientific and modern versions of iconic designs like the upright Sherlock, Double Chamber, and the compact “Pocket” sized designs, each becoming a standard in the industry and a timeless favorite among enthusiasts. 

At Purr Glass, we are committed to forging handcrafted, American-made designs that exceed standards, focus on the finer details, improve your experience, and provide lasting value and satisfaction. We thrive on creating high functioning glass art with a community-focused spirit. We are all about designs that speak to your various needs and unique styles.

Join us in the Purr Glass experience, where every creation is not just an item but a testament to our unique philosophy. With Purr Glass, you don’t just own a bong or a pipe; you are part of a story of innovation, tradition, and community.
