Axel Glasner, who lives near Trier, was born in Trier on 18th December,
1967. He made his first pipes in the mid-1990s, "for home use", as he says
himself. Since about 2003 he has become more deeply involved with
pipemaking. It cannot be overlooked that he has been inspired by works of
Rainer Barbi and Poul Ilsted.
Currently (as of early 2007) Axel Glasner makes non-filter pipes
exclusively, but he is planning to cater for smokers of filter pipes soon as
well. His pipes are available via his web site and at Peter Heinrichs' in
Cologne. Prices range between EUR 100 and EUR 300.
