DAWNMIST STUDIO CLAY PIPES
Made Solely by Heather Coleman

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.

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 temperature. I am not sure what pipe makers of Centuries past would have made of this - I expect they would have preferred their wood and coal-fired kilns!

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

  • This Web Page is up to date as of March 29, 2015.
  • All pipes I have made for this Spring Season are now displayed. My pipes tend to sell out very fast, so my advice is to buy now unless you're prepared to wait another several months for them to come back into stock.
  • Calling all customers of my clay pipes past and present! Do send me pictures of my clay pipes in action for my "Hall of Fame" -- See link near bottom of page.

Long Tudor Clay Pipe



My long Tudor pipe is based on original pieces in my collection dating from around 1590-1610. These have tiny bowls the size of the tip of a finger that allow just a pinch of tobacco and are good for testing various flavours without tainting a larger bowl. Of course in the Tudor period tobacco was so expensive that few could afford to use more than a pinch now and then.

17th Century style WHITE clay pipe



This style pipe has a bowl form that would be suitable for the time period of 1630 through to 1670 so it covers quite a time range for re-enactments. The style would be more suited for a mid-range date of 1650, being larger for 1630 but small for 1670. These are short pieces pressed in the mould, then trimmed and I burnish these all over leaving them with a smooth finish. A line of milling is added to the rim as originals had.

17th century style BLACK clay pipe



This style pipe has a bowl form that would be suitable for the time period of 1630 through to 1670 so it covers quite a time range for re-enactments. The style would be more suited for a mid-range date of 1650, being larger for 1630 but small for 1670. These are short pieces pressed in the mould, then trimmed and I burnish these all over leaving them with a smooth finish. What makes them exciting is that I have made them using a genuine Black clay, which I hope will appeal to people for a number of reasons. Black clay is one of the more exotic clays I sometimes use in the studio. Although it is termed black it is actually a very dark brown. A line of milling is added to the rim as originals had.

17th Century Mariners Clay Pipe



I created this design several years ago based on original clay pipes in my collection made for early Dutch Mariners of the 17th Century. The original idea for this pipe is thought to have been based on the Biblical character of Jonah and the Whale, although I think the creature on the stem looks more like a sea serpent with scales and teeth, which a whale would not have. It might even be that they were first produced because of tales of early colonists in the Florida swamps who were confronted with alligators. Further still there are tales that this pipe represents Sir Walter Raleigh being vomited by an alligator because of the awful stench of tobacco on him! Either way my copy here based on originals is sure to thrill and make a great talking piece.

Dawnmist Mulberry Clay Pipe



This design once again takes inspiration from original pieces in my collection dating from the mid to late 17th Century and brings them to life. Mulberry pipes were produced by several makers in England and they were a popular choice for smokers then as few clays were decorated at that time. I hope you will find it appeals in this Century too!

"Hello Beastie" Clay Pipe



This design once again takes inspiration from original pipes dating from the mid to late 17th Century and brings them to life with a modern twist.

Dutch Short 18th Century Clay Pipe



This pipe is suitable for re-enactments of the 18th Century. The bowl form is a stylised version of the fashionable funnel/egg shaped bowls used by the Dutch during that period. Originals were often much longer than my version, but the length is very suitable being not too short for general use but not long enough to break too easily. There is a line of milling applied to the rim as originals had.

Mermaids & Pirates Clay Pipe



This design once again takes inspiration from original Dutch pipes dating from the early 18th Century and brings them to life in a new way. Original Dutch pipes are amazing to look at in that they sometimes contain all sorts of themes such as men and women or scenes of life at that time. The detailing is always well executed on such pipes. I bring you my own design here which portrays a swimming mermaid on one side and a pirate seated on a barrel with a bottle, glass of grog and a pipe. His ship is in the distance.

1700 style English Clay Pipe

Westcountry Tavern



My NEW design is a typical traditional style that was smoked in Southern England at the beginning of the 18th century. At that time also many millions were exported to Colonial sites as well as being consumed locally. A character of this style is the shape of the bowl with a nice curved heel on the base and milling around the rim.

Dawnmist 1718 Blackbeard Pipe



This bowl form is based upon pipes made in Bristol in England in the 1700's. Often the maker would put their name in a cartouche on the side of the bowl, however, I have chosen the date 1718. Blackbeard the notorious pirate is said to have come from Bristol, plus Bristol pipe makers in the 1700's exported millions of pipes to Colonial sites. So it makes sense that I have made you this fabulous pipe celebrating that famous event in Blackbeard's life.

Dawnmist London 1740 Pipe



Based on a typical London style that was around 1740. It will however be fine for re-enactments covering a wider date range of about 1690 to 1780 for any re-enactment location as London had a huge export business in the 18th Century. I have made this pipe a nice handy shorter length.

Johnny Depp - Proper Pirate Pipe



NEW!!! Proper pirate pipe! I made this design specially for Johnny Depp himself in 2014, pieces delivered to him by a personal friend of his.
This style of pipe was in fashion in the early to mid 18th Century although I have decorated my version with images of Pirate Skull and Crossed-bones and the Sparrow design that Johnny has on his arm. Note the tattoo on his arm faces the same way as on my pipe whereas in the movies it faces the other way.

This is my own design which takes inspiration from the recent tragic event in France and the show of unity and spirit of ordinary people in coming together to remember those who lost their lives. In times past clay pipe makers remembered events in history by expressing them on clay pipes and I feel it is important to continue this tradition.

I have made a very small number of this design. Each pipe was decorated by hand in coloured fired-on ceramic glazes just as original French pipes were in the 19th and early 20th century. One side of the pipe carries the words "Je Suis Charlie" in raised lettering and white glaze. The other side of the bowl carries the French flag in full colour. As the pipe is smoked the bowl will gradually season turning darker and the glaze colours will stand out even more vividly.

ONE-OFF PIECE: Jorgesen & Caldwell 2015 El Capitan free climb





On 15 Jan 2015 free climbers Kevin Jorgesen and Tommy Caldwell reached the top of El Capitan in Yosemite National Park. Inspired by this historical event I decided to make a one-off pipe. In times past clay pipe makers remembered events in history by expressing them on the pipes and I feel it is important to continue this tradition.

This is a one-off piece so there is no other like it and I put a lot of work into creating scenes which have been hand applied and then coloured with fired-on glazes. El Capitan with the lake and trees is shown on one side of the bowl and even has two tiny dots on the top which represent the climbers as they reached the summit. The other side portrays one of the climbers doing the ascent up the rock face.

I hope this pipe will be enjoyed by someone who appreciates the theme.
