I have been making clay pipes since 1998 and my present kiln stands about waist height tall. It is a top-loader fired by an advanced computer system which we developed in-house to have very precise control over some of our other items such as unique crystal glazed vases. The kiln can also be used for scientific tests as the computer produces graphs of the firing and the close tracking of temperature as shown in the image above. The kiln itself reminds me of some sort of space shuttle and does actually have tiles inside which are of the same technological origin. I am not sure what pipe makers of the 19th Century would have made of this, I expect they would have preferred their coal fired kilns!

Pipe prices shown exclude Post & Packing, which is added to your order based upon where you want the pipe delivered (UK, Europe or Worldwide). Our P&P charges are based on what it actually costs us, and are worked out as a starting value, charged for the first pipe you select, plus a small increment for each additional pipe added to your basket. That means, of course, that you can save on Post & Packing costs by buying several pipes at once.

All orders to UK destinations are sent by a fully tracked courier service, which typically takes 3 working days. Those to non-UK destinations are normally sent by standard Airmail. We can provide different delivery services (such as Tracked-and-Signed Airmail or International Courier delivery) subject to additional cost; if you require such a service then please contact us to discuss your requirements: service availability and cost varies by destination country and size of order, so we are unable to offer a standardised menu of these more specialised delivery services.
Our current standard P&P charges for UK, Europe and Worldwide destinations are as follows:

DestinationFirst Pipe P&PAdditional Pipes P&P
UK £3.90 £0.75
Europe €5.95 €1.30 per pipe
Worldwide US$ 9.60 US$ 2.90 per pipe

Coiled Clay Pipe by Heather Coleman

This is a ONE-OFF item. A pipe I made back in about 2005 which has a stem that is coiled into three loops. The stem was extruded on a machine and the bowl was then moulded and joined on to it. It is a fairly simple pipe and not as well finished as my modern pieces but an unusual piece. The hole in the stem does go all the way through so it could potentially be smoked although it requires more suck as the hole is not large.

Stem length 8 inches (23cm) as is made, much longer if coiled included. Bowl chamber size approx 15mm dia x 25mm deep. The mouth end is glazed red.

RED Cutty Clay Pipe by Heather Coleman

Made entirely from Terracotta clay.
This is my version of a traditional short Cutty clay pipe. The design is based on originals that would have been in use by working men of the late 19th Century and through the 20th (c.1880-1960). Cutty pipes are the sort that could be held in the mouth while working (a real nose warmer!).

Stem length is 3 inches (9cm), bowl internal diameter at the rim approx 17mm, depth of smoking chamber approx. 33mm. The pipe is well made only by myself and hand stroke-burnished to a smooth touch. The mouth tip is NOT glazed.

The pipe can be smoked.

SIX in stock
Price is for one pipe.
