Ancient Creations Ceramics have landed, and my writing begins. A small brand located out of Seattle in the United States. Operating since 1995 (!) they have perfected the art of ceramics and pump out some pretty unique handmade pies, water pipes and hookahs. A home pottery studio is where all the magic occurs, and they are what I would consider to be a truly family owned (and run) business. My hats off to them.
Each of their hand pipes are hand formed from solid and pure white porcelain. Oven fired for increased durability then hand painted using 100% food safe glazes. Real platinum and 22k gold are also used. The one in my hand right now is super smooth to the touch and will slip in and out of any pocket/bag effortlessly. Smooth as glass and very stroke-worthy.
This solid all-in-one design is chamber-less and comes without a carb hole. This was done to increase durability and provide a clean and direct smoke experience. Direct yes but will it be clean? Not sure if that is the word I would use.
TIP: Each pipe is designed to be heat resistant, keeping your mouth and hands safe.
Ergonomically designed to fit squarely within your palm whilst you hold it up to your mouth. Shaped like a large teardrop with the narrow point serving as the mouthpiece (nicely rounded). The opposite rounded end is the location of the “bowl”. It is a bowl? Not really. More like an opening (rimmed in gold) with a screen installed at the base. A medium sized chamber in my opinion.
My only point of concern with this pipe was how easy it would be to keep clean. Now that I have one in my hand, I am appeased. Regular cleaning and attention to detail will see you through. The installed screen can be popped out and I recommend soaking it in Isopropyl Alcohol then scrubbing with an old toothbrush. As for the actual pipe. Long cotton buds and bristled pipe cleaners (like from art class!) will work wonders. Isopropyl Alcohol can also be used and depending on levels of gunk built up you can either soak or spot clean the pipe. Rinse all before reassembly. Voila, you are clean!
