THREE LUXURY BLOWFISH SMOKING PIPES WITH TAMPER AND PIPE STAND. Creativity is one of those words that is bursting with vitality. It’s full of life, full of passion, and full of spirit. Creativity has positive associations for nearly everyone. The process of making art and the process of making crafts are related but they are different activities. Many people think of “arts and crafts” as if they were really one process. However, practice with making a craft and making a smoking pipe show us that arts and crafts are really quite different activities. While art is an open-ended or’unstructured’ activity, crafts are goal oriented or’structured. Here you are seeing the perfect combination of art and craft activities by Croatian master Domagoj Telisman. Diversity of material used, perfect harmony in forms and colors, innovation design in Blowfish shape, high quality material and wonderful finish are just some examples are this luxury kit. What makes this kit more interesting is the absolute attention of the artisan to carve each single pipe and to follow his pattern into the other pipes. In this case, all Blowfishes exhibit the similar structure but with different dynamics, materials, colors and forms. This luxury kit includes. Olive Wood Blowfish. Tamper: made of all three materials. Bog Elm pipe-stand with eight stand-points (Leather protected). Three Leather Pouches. Pipes are designed in the shape of Blowfish, which is the most flexible form for a pipe. All pipes are made form the best and highest quality materials. The longest pipe, made of Briar, offers almost unbelievable bird-eye patterns on the sides and pretty tight-lines of briar on the Shank. Flame-like finish of the pipe makes is even more interesting. Te longest pipe place on the lowest stand point at the pipe stand. The second pipe, made of Morta, has the highest wood density, which any pipe maker can ever find. Please check the pictures again to understand how much effort the artisan put on this kit to fulfill his aim. The Morta Blowfish places above the briar pipe at the pipe stand. Third pipe is actually an Olive wood pipe. The smallest Blowfish in this set with dazzling lines of root. The Olive Wood Blowfish places above the Morta pipe at the pipe stand. Although all pipes offer the general shape of Blowfish, acrobatic manner of carving, which masterfully performed by Domagoj, made each single pipe unique. Tamper is made of all three materials and when places on the top (at pipe stand) echoes the effect of tree pipes. The pipe stand is made of very big and rear elm Bog. It has eight stand-point and each stand-point has a Leather protection for the pipes. Domagoj Telisman is the person behind Dotterpipes pipe brand. The name Dotter was coined from the first letters of his name and surname, and it is sort of a nickname that has been with him for a long time. Lots of people know him by that name so it seemed only natural to attach it to his handmade pipes. He has always been very passionate about pipes and it soon became more than just a hobby to him. Ever since he started smoking his dad’s old pipes in 1997, he felt there is something more to it than simple pipe smoking. He started with handmade pipes in 2006, after an amazing beach encounter with a German pipe maker Norbert Riemer. He stumbled across Norbert while he was working on one of his pipes on the beach. He was more than friendly as he spoke to him about pipes, pipe making, briar, about shapes, etc… Those 2 hours with him simply flew by in most interesting conversation. That experience changed his view about pipes, pipe making, pipe smoking and so he became deeply interested in making his own pipes. Immediately after that summer vacation ended he started learning and soaking up every bit of information from the articles he found on the Internet. He had spent many hours looking at workshop photos from other pipe makers, trying to see what kind of tools they use, what kind of machines they work on and how they make certain things on their pipes. He is self-taught, having learnt mostly from his own mistakes and successes at first, and later from the correspondence with senior pipe makers, who have become dear colleagues and friends to him. After he had made his first 30 pipes, which have been smoked only by him, he started stamping his pipes with the DOTTER stamp. Lots of his pipes were gifts to his dear pipe smoking friends, mostly from the Piperson Pipe Club, which he is also a member of. Their comments on his pipes have been valuable, as much as their advice on design and engineering. Being a graphic designer, he has always loved doing creative stuff, and he has always tried to express himself through different materials and media. He has learnt that expressing his creativity through pipe making is something that relaxes and fulfills him. Recently, he has a small workshop in Zagreb – the capital of Croatia. He is constantly trying to improve his work place with new tools and new creative solutions. Nowadays, I use mostly briar and olivewood in making pipes, sometimes bog oak (morta), strawberry tree or some other materials. My pipes come in smooth or rustic finishes. Sandblasting setup is being prepared, he said. Dotter’s pipes have found their satisfied owners all over the world. This item is in the category “Collectibles\Tobacciana\Pipes\Unsmoked”.
