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!
  • This Web Page is up to date as of October 24. 2014
  • I AM PLANNING TO TAKE TIME OUT FROM PIPE MAKING FOR A FEW WEEKS - PERHAPS UNTIL 2015.
  • Once my stock is sold it will come off the inventory until I have made more later on. If it is not shown below then I do not have any available for the time being.

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.

17th Century style WHITE clay pipe by Heather Coleman



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. They are a neat design and can be smoked. The pipes are approx 5 inches long (15cm). Bowl chamber is approx 12mm dia by approx 20mm deep. The mouth end is NOT glazed.

The pipe can be smoked.

17th century style RED clay pipe by Heather Coleman



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 Red clay, which I hope will appeal to people for a number of reasons. Red clay is one of the more colourful clays I sometimes use in the studio and as historians will know, a number of clay pipes made from Red clays were discovered at Colonial sites such as Port Royal. A line of milling is added to the rim as originals had. The pipes are approx 5 inches long (15cm). Bowl chamber is approx 12mm dia by approx 20mm deep. The mouth end is NOT glazed.

The pipe can be smoked.

They are all neatly hand-burnished with a smooth surface and I have added a line of milling on the rim as originals had.

Stem length 8½ inches (22cm). Bowl chamber size approx 11mm dia x 22mm deep. The mouth end is NOT glazed.

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.

Based on traditional Upright style clays that would have been in use from the 1880 period and continued to be popular into the 20th Century.

Stem length is 3 inches (8cm), bowl internal diameter at the rim approx 17mm, depth of smoking chamber approx. 35mm. The pipe is well made only by myself and hand stroke-burnished to a smooth touch. The mouth tip is glazed apple green.

The pipe can be smoked.

Dawnmist Adventurer Clay Pipe by Heather Coleman



Based on traditional style clays that would have been in use from the 1880 period and continued to be popular into the 20th Century. I have called this style a Dawnmist Adventurer and I really like the stylish shape of the bowl on these and the accentuated grip on the base.

Stem length is 4 inches (10cm), bowl internal diameter at the rim approx 17mm, depth of smoking chamber approx. 40mm. The pipe is well made only by myself and hand stroke-burnished to a smooth touch. The mouth tip is glazed apple green.

The pipe can be smoked.

"Tube Celeste" Clay Pipe by Heather Coleman




NEW 2014 - A new creation I produced during summer of 2014, this is a bent tube shaped pipe with an unusual bowl which has a series of holes in the bottom (see image). The entire body of the pipe is hollow and thick which serves as a comfortable shape to hold. The mouth end is 13mm diameter which is large and because the whole pipe is hollow there is plenty of scope for air to move around so the draw on this pipe is very good indeed. This is an experimental idea I came up with so I would be interested to know how you get on smoking it! The mouth end and bowl are glazed in a blue celestine colour (sort of grey/blue).

Bent stem length is 5 inches (12cm), bowl internal diameter at the rim approx 17mm, depth of smoking chamber approx. 20mm. The pipe is well made only by myself and hand-burnished to a smooth touch.

The pipe can be smoked.
