  1. Should You Glaze The Air Shaft Of A Clay Pipe

    That is very true thank you for taking the time to help me out out
  2. Should You Glaze The Air Shaft Of A Clay Pipe

    That's what I thought but I just didn't know of a cleaning standpoint how that would work. IF you have to clean your pipe, I do make them for tobacco but some stores do buy them for other uses where it's legal I just don't know if it's actually safe to clean a clay pipe with alcohol or isopropyl alcohol without glaze
  3. Should You Glaze The Air Shaft Of A Clay Pipe

    I know you have to glaze the outside in the bowl piece but my question is do you really need to glaze the air shaft of the pipe. I ask this because I've been watching a few videos on making Irish pipes and they are very skinny and in the videos they never talked about glazing. I'm not sure if they glaze the inside of the shaft or not because I would like to make my pipes a lot thinner but I also want to make them safe
  4. A little bit to start out I have been making clay pipes and selling them to local stores. The pipes that I have been making have a thicker shaft so I can make a bigger airflow hole so when the clay shrink during firing you don't have to small of a hole to put the glaze in. My question is do you really need to have glaze down the center of the shaft, because I seen some videos on making Irish pipes and when they are being made all they use is a tiny Rod that goes right up the shaft and they don't get into the part where they glaze they just show you the final product. I would really appreciate the help because the stores would like a thinner pipe and be able to glaze the air shaft
