― S [3 dots]

Artisan: Patrice Sébilo stopped his pipe-maker activities when he sold in 2002 his workshop at Herbignac to Trever Talbert.

The petrified oak used by Sébilo (and Talbert) came from the Brière marshes (Brittany FR). This wood has been radiocarbon dated: 1497 to 1171 BC. Dentochronologic dating tests on a sample led to a 1342 BC date (1).

"The more the grain is tight, the more it is hard, the more it is fire-resistant" (the carver). One to four dots on Sébilo's bowls indicate the hardness grade of the morta.

The pipe-maker's advices:

  • 1 & 2 dots. The pipe may be smoked twice or 3 times in a day.
  • 3 & 4 dots. A pipe each smoker can use as he/she pleases.

Talbert, S 3

Faite en Bretagne

Trever Talbert's Morta pipes essentially come from a stock of petrified wood inherited from his predecessor Patrice Sébilo. Talbert occupied Sebilo's former workshop in Herbignac (Brittany FR) from 2002 until May 2009.

The bog oak used by Talbert came from the Brière marshes (Brittany FR). This wood has been radiocarbon dated: 1497 to 1171 BC. Dentochronologic dating tests on a sample led to a 1342 BC date (1).
