Some beautiful and very original designs in that video. Lovely to look at and there’s no doubting the skill and imagination involved. Super finishing on the pipes as well. Is this the maker who has a unique filter system with his pipes? I seem to recall seeing a Greek maker (and there are at least a couple) who patented his own system.
Thanks for posting. A delight to see these creations.

Yes he is, it's called Aspida [means shield in english] and created based on his knowledge in Engineering. You can find details for this in his site, i use that system in Aromatics and works!

I post this video for information purposes only, i am not a middleman propoting anyone, i just want to show you what kind of pipes he creates in Greece based in mathematics and engineering with an "artistic" touch. I hope that you will like it and will gine an inspiration to those who make smoking pipes.
