Making of Extra Long and Beautiful Pipes
After many decades of pipe making, I have finally been able to reproduce the old worlds craft of long THIN and durable bent pipe stems. A stem over 12 inches in length, with a diameter of less than or equal to 1/4 inch is challenging at best. 18 inches and more are rare indeed! With each stem I make, exceeding 12 inches, I lose 1 in 3 tries. The process is slow and frustrating.
However, once accomplished the outcome is an elegant and sturdy stem which is easily removed from the bowl for cleaning. Each ‘Extra Long’ stem I produce takes an average of 2 days to complete from start to finish.
