DAWNMIST STUDIO CLAY PIPES
Since 1998

Here you will find an ever-changing selection of the clay pipes that I have designed and made, many of them based on originals. Over the years I have produced for Smokers, Collectors, Re-enactors, Movies, TV and Theatre.

Each pipe I make is carefully formed and hand finished giving you a finely crafted product. My aim has always been to provide pipes that will be admired and enjoyed - even destined to become sought-after antiques of the future! Some are inspired by old pieces in my collection and I often try to emulate the elegance and quirks that those display.

Do browse my inventory and if you need more help then do ask. You may order and pay immediately through the shopping basket system provided. Remember that my stock changes throughout the year so do come back for another visit soon. Thank You.

ANNOUNCEMENTS............

  • This Web Page is up to date as of October 10 2018.

POSTAL PRICE INFORMATION...

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

ONE-OFF Wolf Clay Pipe




REDUCED SALE PRICE!
I created this pipe a few months ago with the bowl in the form of a wolf head. It took several days to complete.
This is a totally unique, one-off creation and I have not made another like it and not likely to again.
All hand modelled and carved from white clay, hand burnished smooth surface. The mouth tip is treated with white fired-on glaze. The face features and neck are treated with glazes including some metallic bronze lustre. When smoked the bowl colour will darken and the glazed features will stand out more adding to the overall wow appearance!

This is a pipe that will really make you howl! I hope it will be enjoyed for many years.

ONE-OFF Christmas Celebration Clay Pipe!
With real Gold/Platinum/Bronze/Copper highlights





REDUCED SALE PRICE!
I created this pipe a few months ago at the end of 2017 with the bowl shaped like a christmas tree surrounded with gifts.
This is a totally unique, one-off creation and I have not made another like it and not likely to again.
A lot of work went into this pipe taking over a week to complete - the bowl has a double wall to make it lighter to carry which was quite demanding to produce. Then all the gifts around the tree (including a bottle and cracker) were individually thought up and planned with care.
Once the pipe was fired I then hand painted it with ceramic glazes in various colours. The pipe was again fired in the kiln.
Finally hand painted using metallic glazes to add some spectacular sparkle using real 24ct gold, platinum, bronze and copper gilding and fired in the kiln again. My name and stamp are on the underside.
There is an acrylic stem fitted into the socket of the pipe with a firm cork sleeve so the mouth piece can be removed if needed. The pipe was designed to be smoked if wanted. This is a pipe that will wow someone in the coming season - which might still seem a long way off but get this item while you can!

PLEASE NOTE: This pipe will need loving care due to the work that went into making it and the delicate star feature on the top. When using it do not bash the pipe to empty out ash or it will break. Use a tooth pick or even one of the metal pipe scrapers for sale below.


PIPE SPECIFICATIONS
Suitable for a Re-enactment date of: 1880-2018
Surface finish: All hand-painted, fired on glazes giving a nice smooth quality
Length of Stem approx: 120mm (4 and a quarter inches from mouth tip to chamber hole)
Chamber diameter at rim approx: 22mm
Chamber depth approx: 30mm
Mouth-Piece: Black Acrylic

Clay Pipe Stem Scraper 12 inch



Specially formed metal wire for dealing with blockages which might occur in your pipe stem due to the build up of sticky resin. This wire will work for any pipes up to 12 inches in length. It is made to suit my own Dawnmist Studio products which have a bore size of 2mm or more. It might work for other clay pipes you have if the hole is large enough. The wire is 1mm diameter iron with a grip at one end and shaped edge at the other. It will also bend to suit curved pipes!

Push the wire carefully into the clay pipe stem until the obstruction is reached twisting to gradually slice through the sticky tar, then push up and down to remove the waste material.
If your clay pipe is longer than 12 inches I can make them up to the right length, just let me know.
Note the price of postage works out more economical when purchased with a clay pipe rather than on its own.

OTHER CLAY PIPES: Not made by Heather...


Decorated Tudor clay pipe by Dr David Higgins



Just a few left in stock of a decorated Tudor style clay pipe which were made by my friend Dr David Higgins. David usually writes reports on clay pipes for archaeological publications and now and then he makes a few of these lovely pipes.

This design is based on original English pipes of the 1580-1600 period and have really small bowls the size of the tip of a little finger. David has decorated the stem of each pipe by hand with an array of tiny stamps which really make these special. I was almost tempted to keep them all myself!

The pipes are burnished all over and have what he calls an antique finish which make them look a pleasant ivory white colour. Please note: The there are some slight bends in the stems on these - not a defect, just how they were moulded.

PIPE SPECIFICATIONS
Suitable for a Re-enactment date of: 1580-1600
Surface finish: hand-burnished giving a nice smooth quality
Length of Stem approx: 17cm (6 and a half inches)
Chamber diameter at rim approx: 7mm
Chamber depth approx: 17mm
Mouth-Tip finish: Not applicable
All pipes are suitable for smoking
