Color-changing pipes or fumed pipes are some of the most fun pipes out there. How these pieces change colors is that when they’re made they’re fumed with precious metal, usually 24k gold or .999 fine silver. Then as these pipes are used the resin starts to interact with the fuming and will change colors. The more the piece is used the more it changes colors. The cool thing is after it's cleaned it will go back to how you got it when it was brand new and you can start changing the colors all over again.
What is a Color-changing pipe?

How Do Color-Changing Pipes Work?
We went over it slightly before. But let’s get into it a little deeper. Color-changing pipes are given their special color-changing quality in the extreme heat stages of creation. Once the glassblower has the final shape of a pipe, they lightly blow either 24k gold or .999 fine silver into the glass pipe. Here it lines the inside walls of the pipe. Making the gold or silver become one with the glass piece. As the gold and silver merge with the glass, and the annealing (slow cooling) process begins the gorgeous color-changing features are created. As time goes on and the smoke from your bowls interacts with the glass, the precious metals start to refract light in ways different than without the precious metal. So as you smoke with it, your piece will start to grow and change with you.
