Kaolinite Drone

The Kaolinite Drone pipe is smokable sculpture at its wildest. Let it transport you!

Springing from the active imagination of artist Jennifer Wilkinson, the Drone is a contender for Most Original Pipe award. Named after the primary ingredient in porcelain, Kaoline, a dusty white clay mineral, the Drone has an ivory-colored, oversized & squat body that’s subtly rippled and ridged, evoking a topographical map or resonating sound waves. The pipe’s base is capped in a dizzying matrix of handmade kaleidoscopic fractal patterning with bright yellow-green rim. This is an alternative history of smokeware, flown in from the future.

One of a kind, edition 1 of 1! It’s all yours.

Porcelain body, with base wrapped in polymer clay and coated in a thick, protective clear gloss. Pinpoint carb to the left of the roomy rectangular bowl and an oblong intake at the apex. Weighs in at 19 oz, and measures 10 x 8 x 2 inches. Minor surface variations like speckles and cracks to remind you it was handmade by a human.
