Prism Water Pipes

Prism Water Pipes is a water pipe manufacturing company. We make custom bongs, big bongs, small bongs, and so on. It’s also a big focus for us to make sure it’s easy for a Prism owner to always have a clean bong.

Our mission is to modify the water pipe by design to eliminate issues based around breaking glass, cleaning, and the simple fact that you cannot change a solid glass piece after it’s been purchased.

This is all done through the modular concept. Using our aluminum clamps, and US glass manufacturing process we are able to achieve a perfect seal making the piece air tight and allowing the owner to handle it as if it were a solid piece of glass.

Our mission is to make authentic cultural connection and exploration accessible to everyone, everywhere.

Created by a trio of globally-minded teachers, GLOMADO (which stands for GLObal MAkers and DOers) was born out of the mission to give people of all backgrounds and ages the ability to explore the world in an affordable, constructive, and accessible way.

GLOMADO’s purpose is simple: connect people through culture, and connect cultures through people. While world travel is often life-changing, it’s not always within reach. We created GLOMADO to make authentic cultural connection and exploration accessible to everyone, everywhere.

Passero’s Coffee Roaster

Serving Philadelphia’s finest cup of coffee with a smile has been our goal since 1990. While we are focused (and some might say obsessed) with coffee, our true strength is in the care and attention we give our customers.

We have learned much since serving our first cup. We now personally hand-roast our beans and are constantly evolving. The one thing that remains consistent at Passero’s is our focus on our customers. We take great pride in helping wake up Philadelphia each and every morning with our fun and knowledgable staff and our really great coffee.

A&S Manufacturing Company

At A&S Manufacturing Company, we do things a little different. For example, when was the last time you heard about a manufacturer that shipped INTO Mexico? Or, has your current supplier offered to open up a consignment warehouse near your facility to reduce your shipping costs and provide “just-in-time” delivery? We do this and so much more every day. For over 25 years we have been focused on satisfying our customers. We provide manufacturing at the highest quality with the quickest turnaround while always looking for innovative improvements. We do this in order to help our customers reduce costs and achieve faster time to market with a guaranteed quality that they know they can trust.

Jen Blazina

Philadelphia artist Jen Blazina’s work represents a sense of holding onto a place in time. Inspired by her grandfather’s photography, she blends surreal imagery and found objects in her cast glass objects. Her work combines her background in photography and printmaking through the use of digital imagery imprinted on cast and re-fabricated objects. This process, she says, allows her to “recast the history of the objects as part of my own current voice.”

Her work is represented by Wexler Gallery in Philadelphia, Koelsch Gallery in Houston, Morgan Contemporary Glass Gallery in Pittsburgh, and Packer Schopf Gallery in Chicago.
