Private work by Pierre Müller
19 August 2015
Pierre Müller is a Swiss jeweler by profession and pipe smoker by passion. For decades he was board member of various pipe smokers associations, as the Pipe Club de Suisse, for which he organized so many meetings. But Müller did more than that. In his leisure time he designed tobacco pipes and during his long life he built up quite a collection self-made pipes. He was able to get hold of the finest briar blocks and designed his pipes according the wood and its grain. Every single pipe he made as a artwork by design and finish, mostly sanded and polished by hand. His unique collection is now published in a privately printed book as a tribute to the passion of a pipe smoker for his smoking instrument.
