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.

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.

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.
Our current standard P&P charges for UK, Europe and Worldwide destinations are as follows:

DestinationFirst Pipe P&PAdditional Pipes P&P
UK £3.90 £0.75
Europe €5.95 €1.30 per pipe

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.

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.

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.

PIPE SPECIFICATIONS
Suitable for a Re-enactment date of: 1580-1600
Surface finish: hand-burnished giving a nice smooth quality
Length of Stem approx: 17cm (6 and a half inches)
Chamber diameter at rim approx: 7mm
Chamber depth approx: 17mm
Mouth-Tip finish: Not applicable
All pipes are suitable for smoking
