Who is The Oven Company?
You know that we are an online smoke shop, but who are we really? Who are the people behind the face of The Oven Company? Well, for now there is only me. There is one person behind it all- my name is Dani Stone (not my real name, but let’s say “my stage name”). I’ve always been a very artsy type of person.
My skills in creating art work has never been the best, but I love to admire it and collect it. I used to collect these Mexican woodcarvings from Disney World whenever I would go there with my family on vacation. I found them to be so beautiful and somewhat mysterious. I always felt like there was some kind of story behind it.
One day I randomly stumbled upon glasswork, when I was watching a video of a YouTuber who was in a glass blowing factory. I found it to be so fascinating- how the glass is constructed with heat and formed in various shapes and sizes. It was cool- I fell in love.
I eventually got my first piece after shopping around for awhile- I was still underage at the time, some smoke shops will not let anyone under 21 buy from them. When I received my first piece in the mail, I instantly fell in love. It was a beautiful yellow and red Sherlock pipe. It wasn’t big, but it was perfect. Sadly, that piece died over last summer, while I was trying to clean it and my hand slipped. May he rest in peace. He was a good pipe, he didn't deserve the fate that he recieved. But what I first remember when getting my pipe was that it was so beautiful. I honestly think I had a couple tears in my eye. I felt this overwhelming emotion of joy. I loved it. I loved this type of art. I wanted to be apart of it- I wanted to be apart of this community, so I decided to start my own smoke shop company.
My goal with my company is to bring people the same joy that I felt when I received my first piece. I want to spread how beautiful this art craft is across the world. There is such a stigma around smoke shops, glass pipes, water pipes, and etc. But really it’s just art and it’s beautiful. If you look at it, a smoke shop is really just a glass art gallery. No different than art that you find in a museum and it should be treated as such.
A lot of smoke shops are very expensive- glass is very expensive, especially if the craftsmanship is very intricate in design. The Oven Company will always try to keep the prices fair for what the piece is worth. We want everyone to be able to access this piece of art. We select the best glass pipes/hand pipes, water pipes, and rigs across the world to showcase in our gallery. We hope that you find a piece from us that you fall in love with it.
This is who I am, this is what The Oven Company is all about.
