Sajama is a ceramic pipe made by using a combination of stoneware and porcelain clays. The resulting patterns from this mix are wholly unique and one-of-a-kind, like snowflakes or fingerprints.
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.
These pipes are fired in reduction, in a gas kiln at an extremely high fire temperature. The heat renders these pipes especially sturdy, and the reduction process creates an ever-changing array of finishes.
Variations in colour, shade, surface texture and size are natural characteristics of the Sajama pipes and should be expected. Images shown are representative, but may not indicate all variations in these characteristics. Refer to the fourth/fifth images for a better representation.
