DAWNMIST STUDIO CLAY PIPES
Made Solely by Heather Coleman 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.

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!

Faux Clay Pipes for Movie Maker's





One of the things I have noticed over the many years I have been providing clay pipes for Movies and TV is that in many background scenes the actors have their hand over the bowl of the pipe so all you see is the stem.
I have created this group of hand-made faux pipes specially for this purpose which is a cost effective way for you to have the appearance of clay pipes in the background scenes of some shots.

You get everything in the picture here for the price given. P&P on this group is charged at the usual cost for one just pipe!

Because these are all made by hand you get a fairly random selection of lengths, thicknesses, some being curved and others straight. These are solid pieces of clay with a flattened bend end at the bowl, they have no holes in them and no smoking chambers.

Dawnmist Pocket Pipe



NEW 2017! My new design is based on a style that was around in the mid 19th to early 20th century. It is a small pipe with a short stem and nicely curved bowl. The base has a "slipper" shaped heel which makes a handy grip either while paking the pipe or smoking it. I have called this a Dawnmist Pock Pipe because it is slightly smaller than average although the bowl chamber size is comparible with other pipes I make, see size chart below. My name is stamped on the stem just as original makers did in past times.

This is a huge pipe with height from tip of beard to top of 6 inches! The pipe will come with a brown reed stem and can be smoked though the chamber is large. I occasionally make these but not often.

OTHER CLAY PIPES: Not made by Heather...


Decorated Tudor clay pipe by Dr David Higgins



I have taken stock of a few decorated Tudor style clay pipes 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.
