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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

The base has a "slipper" shaped heel which makes a handy grip either while paking the pipe or smoking it.

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.
