What do you know about bongs? Except for "it is a glass piece which is used for smoking tobacco!" Bongs are much more than that and it definitely values much more than that,
Let's Start with the basics first!
What's a bong? 
A bong is a glass pipe which is generally used to smoke substance mainly herb and tobacco. A bong is filled with water which cools the smoke as it passes through! The bong was invented several thousand years ago in the middle east for smoking tobacco. A bong is definitely the most preferred method of smoking herb for many people because it drives the smoke deeper into the user's lungs faster than any other method, thus exposing more of the mucous membranes to smokes, thus getting the user much higher using less herb! 
What's a bong made of? 
A bong is made up of lots of materials which is impermeable to both air and water! Generally, Bongs are made up of Glass, Acrylic and ceramic material. 
What does a bong generally consist?
The most basic of the bong generally consist of Flared Mouthpiece, chamber, stem or bowl! But new bongs are coming with a lot of things including percolator ice catcher and much more. Percolator helps to diffuse the smoke making it much more smoother and less harsh for the throat and on the other end if it contains ice catcher then it is definitely a piece you should go for, as the ice catcher will cool down the smoke which will be making it cooler and less harsh for the throat. 
The Functionality Of the bong?
Bong is definitely very elegant in most functional and non-functional ways! whereas functional ways Including attaching addition of percolator (It allows further filtration of the smoke) Multiple bowls (It allows two people to smoke at the same time). 
How are percolators made and are attached to the bongs?
Internal percolators, filters inside of the bong, it is generally made up of same glass pieces as of the bong, this is the part where glassblowers specifically show their talent, creating an intriguing internal structure for the smoke to filter and cool through. These percolators are put inside the body and/or neck and then the glass is welded to it using a torch. Any extra glass is pulled off in order to ensure that the product is smooth and even once it’s all put together.

The neck is then reattached to the base if necessary by using a spinning machine (known as a lathe) that keeps the glass pieces steady and even as they are heated and joined. In order to make the bottom of the bong flat, some glassblowers use a lapping wheel, which rotates a water-lubricated abrasive wheel (often coated with diamonds) that flattens the glass.
After everything is done the neck is attached and the glass piece is put into an annealer, which helps to remove the heat stress put on the glass during the blowing process if this isn't done bongs are more likely to break under pressure even in the smallest of change in climate, which obviously no one would want.
