Tom Eltang among the world’s best pipe makers
Date: June 6th, 2012
Denmark hosts some of the world’s very best pipe makers. This is actually a bit of a paradox as it was the Swedish pipe maker Sixten Ivarsson who lived in Copenhagen in the 1950s.
Sixten Ivarsson invented a method where you fit the individual pipe to a piece of wood instead of the traditional method where each pipe was an exact copy the the previous one. Hence, pipe makers went from being workers to artists. At least in Denmark.
One of Sixten Ivarsson’s heirs is Tom Eltang who today ranks among the world’s most acknowledged and well-known pipe makers. And who contributes to positioning Denmark as a world leader in pipes.
And when you see examples of Tom’s pipes who understand why – they are pure art! /asger
