High Art was founded by Richard Lawson and Kristian North, two ceramic artists who live and work in Montreal QC. Launching in 2017 with the goal of making bongs and other cannabis accessories with the finesse of fine art, the two began designing and crafting their one of a kind, hand made objects. Today their vision remains the same, creating aesthetically beautiful and unique pieces. Something beyond the smoking experience. A centrepiece.
If cannabis has been used to conjure visions by wise leaders or spiritual figures of ancient history, perhaps this can help us understand why in more modern times cannabis has formed such a strong relationship with art, being favoured by writers, painters, sculptors, actors or musicians as a powerful inspirational tool.
