MUD HEDZ PIPES ARE REALLY COOL!
They are cool looking. They provide a cool smoke and they are cool to the touch. Mud Hedz pipe forms are inspired by post war salt & pepper shakers, vintage hobby ceramics and pop culture. In addition to being thoughtfully, designed and crafted to work well. they are very tactile and have a great palm feel.

All Mud Hedz pipes are hand cast in earthenware clay. They are hollow inside and they provide a smooth, cooled smoke. Mud Hedz pipes won't heat up like a glass pipe and will stay cool to the touch. They are glass glazed inside and out, with premium, lead free, dinnerware safe glazes. Mud Hedz pipes can be cleaned like a glass pipe with alcohol and salt or commercial, pipe cleaning solutions. A complimentary, brass screen, in the attached label; is included with your purchase.

It is my goal to create a fun, beautiful, well designed and crafted pipe that works great, is durable and is easy to care for. I hope that you will love your Mud Hedz pipe!

Mud Hedz, Really Cool, Handmade, Ceramic Pipes

Mud Hedz pipes are designed, and made by artist, Ruth Plaster. They are “really cool” handmade pipes. Mud Hedz pipes are cool looking and lovely to use; with fun designs, bright colored glazes and tactile finishes. They, provide a smooth, cooled smoke; as they have roomy hollow bodies. And they remain cool and comfortable to the touch, because they are made of porous earthenware clay.

The inspiration for Mud Hedz, pipe designs grew out of the artist’s attraction to vintage salt and pepper shakers and to her flea market found collection of 1960’s and 70’s hobby ceramic objects. Just like the pieces that inspired them, Ruth’s pipes are made using the slip casting process. Slip casting involves pouring liquid clay (slip) into plaster molds allowing the pieces to cure for a while and then pouring out the excess slip. The result is a thin walled, hollow clay form.

Mud Hedz pipes, are poured and formed in plaster molds that Ruth casts over hand sculpts, actual objects and sometimes, a combination of both. Every Mud Hedz pipe is unique; as each is hand tooled, shaped, smoothed and perfected by the artist; before it is dried, fired, glazed and refired.

Mud Hedz pipes are glazed inside and out with dinnerware safe, lead free glazes. They are easy to clean and will hold up for many years. Ruth is proud to be one of a handful of clay artist who are forging an appreciative market for small batch, hand cast, ceramic pipes.
