You have seen his films; you heard his laugh. You may even have smoked his weed. But have you seen Seth Rogen’s orb? Don’t worry, it’s not a metaphor for anything. It’s literally just an orb, or, really, more of an abstract sculpture. And the sculpture is just one of many ceramics made by comedians on display during a tour of his Houseplant Headquarters with Architectural Summary.
Rogen is a man of many talents. He’s a writer, actor, patron saint of Hollywood stoners, and co-founder of his own cannabis and homeware company, Houseplant. And, surprisingly, the company’s headquarters looks almost exactly what you’d expect a wealthy white man’s weed accessory business to look like. The houseplant’s home base is a literal house, specifically a 1918 bungalow in Los Angeles that’s significantly nicer than anywhere you smoke your weed. The place is impeccably decorated with, what else, a collection of vintage ashtrays, as well as Houseplant products.
“I had a hard time furnishing my house in a way that complimented the fact that I smoked weed all day, every day, and also the fact that I wanted to have nice things around,” says Rogen in the shot video, showing his vases and his signature “gooey glaze.” Between showing off various Houseplant products — a marbled rolling tray, a lighter that apparently featured in a photo with Beyoncé — Rogen stops to admire a piece of art. “And that’s an orb I made,” he said, pausing to laugh. The orb looks suspiciously like a vase – with the shape of a slightly elongated snowman – and is lavender and green. In other words, it’s everything you’d hope for from a Seth Rogen “orb.”
Other items featured in the tour are a desk lamp-ashtray combo and a lighter holder in the shape of her dog, Zelda. “I always lose my lighters,” Rogen admitted. “Me and my wife, we don’t argue much. She’s really mad that I take her lighters and lose them. I don’t know where they are going. I won’t pretend it’s not a real problem. He sculpts orbs and recognize his faults? It’s hot.
