Yuki Tokutomi is the daughter of the great Japanese pipe maker Hiroyuki Tokutomi.

She has been making pipes since mid-2005. Though a young newcomer to pipe making, she grew up with it, watching her father work and helping him around the workshop, inculcating a love of the process and the materials. Working alongside her father in his workshop, Yuki's style reflects that of her father, yet maintains a character of its own. For stylistic influence, in addition to her father, she seems to draw on the work of Danish pipe makers Gert Holbek and, of course, the pipes of her father's teacher, Sixten Ivarsson.

She debuted successfully at the CPCC show 2007.
