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)

pipes at least from the early 1970's. Last news about him dates from November

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