Jørn Micke

Artisan: Jørn Micke (1938 - †2005) gave up his medicine study after a visit to Sixten Ivarsson in 1958. He started to work for Ivarsson in his workshop and at this time his pipes were selling for twice the price of the master's.

In 1963 he moved to Bornholm where he produced about 20 pipes/year (very much appreciated in Japan).

Micke used to design pipes for Royal Copenhagen (the Royal Porcelain Factory)

― Micoli ―

 A moderately rusticated/carved Micoli pipe compared to others from the same maker. Notice the carving motif incorporated into the doubly bent stem.

Artisan: Robert Eugene (Mic) Burns carved pipes at least from the early 1970's. Last news about him dates from November 2001. His son Ryan Burns stated in a forum his father is still (2009) very much alive and is in excellent health.

The deeply Dremmel carved pipes are typical of R. Burns' work.
