Miwak Junior's Julio is a pipely study in monochromatic color featuring a clear glaze in the bowl that intensifies the color of the porcelain clay body.

A hollow interior provides a large chamber for smoke, and the exterior is hand-finished for a smooth feel in the palm. The bowl of the pipe is hand-glazed for a non-porous, easy-to-clean surface.

Miwak Junior pipes are fired in reduction, in a gas kiln at an extremely high fire temperature. The heat renders their pipes especially sturdy, and the reduction process creates an ever-changing array of finishes which make each piece unique.

Miwak Junior first began as a rebellious act in a community college ceramics class, where making smoking implements was strictly verboten. Chilean artist Sebastian Boher tried twice to sneak a pipe into the kiln; but on his third try, the pipe went undetected by the censors, proving that he'd created an object of beauty with a discreet functionality. The Miwak Junior aesthetic is inspired by Pre-Columbian cultures, Space Age wonder, and the clean minimalism of Japanese design. Sebastian lives and works in Los Angeles, out of his home studio.
