borne in 1963 in Leningrad. I finished at the Medical institute and even while at the institute I began to study the restoration of furniture and drawing. This was my hobby. I Also began my first experiments in pipe making because the aesthetics of pipe smoking interested me since childhood, and in those days pipes for sale were scarce. I only seriously began pipe production recently, when both information and materials became accessible in Russia.
All pipes are completely hand made. Machine tools are only used for drilling and slitting the mouthpieces. I do not use any templates; therefore the duplication of shapes does not occur. I think that the nonrepeatability of shapes is one of the key advantages of hand made pipes. You can be assured that you will never meet someone else with the same pipe made by me. The similarities will only be in the shape, but the versions of form, size and finishing will be different.
