Each Baked in Vermont pipe is handmade with love and care. Each bowl is hand formed and each hole is created by hand. The decorations are a mixture of handprinted images and vintage 1970s English decals. Meticulously applied by hand. These pipes are fired 4 times to achieve their distinctive feel and look. They reach a top temperature of 2300F so they are made to last. They can be cleaned like any glass pipe.
