am Elie. I'm a pipe carver, making hand
made, freehand tobacco pipes. Formerly
situated in Belgium and in Portugal, I'm now
living and working in the Périgord Vert,
There's not that much to be told about me.
I'm a mostly self taught pipe maker who is
passionate about this art of carving
freehands out of briar. As you will notice
from the images: I don't stick to one style,
one material. Mostly not traditional, not
standard. I like to stretch the boundaries
of traditional handmade pipes. My aim is to
create beauty on a few square inches.
years, I have build a world-wide reputation
for creating unique pipes, often out of the
ordinary, and also, as the only one in the
world, for making system, aluminum pipes and
for, mostly unique, replacement bowls for
vintage radiator pipes like Falcon®,
quality of my handmade pipes: I have 3
A: High end. Collector's grade.
S: Smokers' grade. (Might sometimes, but
not always, have tiny imperfections,
hardly noticeable, like a small
R: Reject. In this case, something went
wrong, but perfectly smokable pipe.
