A twenty-two-year-old artist, Ben Milstein, has entered the rapidly growing marijuana industry. Milstein contributes his earlier success in the marijuana industry from seeking an investment opportunity when a friend suggested marijuana stocks a few weeks before legalization in the state Colorado, and then stocks ran.

Now, Milstein creates extravagant, hand-blown glass pipes and bongs which sell for up to six figures. Yes, six figures.

“I’m not selling bongs — I’m selling works of art,” Milstein said in an interview.

Millstein’s company dubbed Grey Space Art, hosts pop-up galleries throughout the major cities across the country. His private collection now contains over 500 pieces made by over 75 different artists. This collection, which Millstein said he will not sell, because as he said demands “to be seen by more people,” and also because over the last two years the collection has tripled in value.

“There’s a reason why I’m in this industry and not buying wall art. It’s about the momentum of the cannabis industry,” Milstein said.

Shortly after, Millstein began his trip around the world in search of glass pipes and bongs to purchase. Grey Space Art was founded in 2016, when Millstein hosted the launch party in the home of designer Riccardo Tisci in New York City. His collection has been featured in Art Wyndwood in Miami, New York Fashion Week, and the Chateau Marmont hotel in Hollywood.

His pieces, all handmade from borosilicate glass, range in price anywhere from $5,000 to $300,000. The piece, valued at $110,000, “Hayabusa Satellite” allows users to inhale from the base of a spacecraft-replica. Another piece, the “Honeybear,” shaped as a honey dispenser has increased in value from $100 two years ago to $5,000 currently.

“I’m in full support of legalization and removing the stigma around marijuana. That starts with showcasing these artists as professionals,” Milstein has stated.
