Point of view


My name is Branko Sesa. I was born in Croatia in 1962 and I've lived and worked in Torino in the last fifteen years. I've crafted wood since I had been in my country but here, in Italy I realised my long standing desire to construct pipes.

Right from the beginning, nine years ago I had the luck to meet the big craftsman and maestro Mauro Gilli that with his precious advice has led me into the art of the craftsmanship. Curious by nature I have tried myself with different essences like root briar, lemonwood, olivewood, cherry wood and black oak.

I continued to make pipes made of root briar, olivewood and black oak according to their resistance, taste and the fulfilment of their aesthetic criteria. I also make mouthpieces out of different materials, mostly methacrylate, but if the shape, the lines or the colour of the wood require it I also use ebonite, cumberland or amber. In the craft I tend to free forms, probably it would be better to say : sculpture pipes, So in this last period I make "fossil" pipes out of root briar and "ship" pipes out of black oak.

In the case that the "materia prima" (raw material) has a particular and nice grain I tend to more simple, almost classic forms. I dedicate a special care to every detail in both the classic and the "sculpture" pipes. This is the reason for which my year production of pipes is limited to 40 / 50 pieces. With every new pipe I tend to improve the technical realisation.

On the creative side my aim is to realise a distinguishing personal style that has to be in harmony with the easiness with which my pipes are smoked.
