Broseley Clay Tobacco Pipes
Rex M. Key is the British artisan who produces clay pipes. A student of these pipes for over 20 years, Rex works in Broseley, a town in which records of clay pipes go back to 1590 and where production reached its peak in the 17th century. The Southorn factory, owned by Edwin Southorn, was the last to close in 1957, and is now the home of the Broseley Pipeworks Museum, open from April to November. Rex makes clay pipes through a traditional process and accepts commissions.
