This week an imaginary trip to the reserves of pipe makers’ tools to select dirty pipe moulds for cleaning. This year not with two but with four hands, with the help of an intern who quickly learns what cleaning means without destroying the patina of years. It wasn't difficult this year to select a portion of more than a hundred dusty molds for cleaning, next year it will be different. Most of the work has been done, so this sub-collection is now looking fine. After this weekend, a photo week will follow in order to make the results visible on the web. Then this heavy collection part can be viewed and studied all over the world.
