About the Artist

 

Aleksić Dragomir or so called Alexa was born in 1956, in Belgrade, Serbia. Formally educated as a mechanics engineer he acquired the skills needed around the machinery forty years ago. During his engineering career, firstly he nurtured his talent for artistic wood carving, as a hobby. Long has he desired to combine his natural artistic talent and his education inprecision  engineering.  Finally  in  1995,  his  career  took a change in  direction  when he decided to make his hobby a full  time job, working as a designer and a wood carver infurniture production at first and as an indipendent pipe maker today.

 

What led him to be making smoking pipes specificly was pure luck, as it often happens with great moments in one's life. Years ago a chance meeting with an old acquaintance led him  to witness a truly magnificet collection of smoking pipes in possesion of a passionate pipe smoker. Fascination followed promptly and a new passion was born! Smoking pipes had been a fascination of his in two ways - first, there was the beauty of form and material in them, elegance in their design, a true art form in its own right and second, the irresistible challenge of making a functional product that requires skill, knowledge and patience  to bemade. Great determination was required and produced to learn as much as one can about pipe smoking, pipe making, about tobacco, materials, about the art of it all. As a result of his hard work, a number of unique pipes have been made and presented at Pipesart.
