My name is Sidrit Vaqari. I’ve been sculpting and making pipes for 18 years now. Every epic character inspired me to carve this kind of pipes but Lord of the Rings & the Hobbit are my favorites. I love Gandalf!

So Gandalf is my inspiration… I put all my works on my Instagram account so you can check them out there.
It took me about 250 hours to finish this epic character smoking pipe
It’s made from a block of briar wood which is 50 years old
It is a very strong wood… The older, the stronger
So I turned it into a Smaug pipe and I used only knives to carve this wood
After a month of work, the pipe is almost completed
It was a really difficult character!
Finally completed, added a black arrow for tamper to put tobacco into the pipe
