While I like the above pic I wonder if it is a little too detailed. I've worked with clay before and you can have a very detailed glaze painting before firing but the glaze tends to spread a little as it melts so you will lose detail and it could get muddied.
    This is a good question, if it is decided to use this image. Here's a club pipe done for the Sherlock Holmes pipe club in Boston. It gives some idea of the type of detail possible.



    I think what also would need to be considered to get the best effect on this image is the relative size of the pipe smoker to the cloud of smoke and how they both will be positioned on the bowl without making the pipe smoker too small or too big and losing the effect of the original image. I imagine you'd need to make the smoker fairly small and the cloud of smoke a thick band around the rim perhaps but there might be other solutions that look good.

    As for the copyright thing, I'm an artist so I'd definitely say the artist should be contacted. Who knows, they might well realize that there is no money being made here and be willing to give permission to use the image in exchange for photos they could use on their website as a promotional tool, or in exchange for a pipe, or some other arrangement/agreement. They might even be a pipe smoker, considering the image, who knows? Worth contacting them and finding out if they can be reached. Please understand that I have no dog in this fight as I didn't vote as I probably won't be getting the pipe. I just thought that contacting the artist might be worth it and might alleviate the concerns and let everyone have the pipe the want.

    Wow! I didn't think that level of detail was possible. How big is that pipe? My LePeltier is pretty small.

    I don't know the size. I just found the pictures a while back in one of their club newsletters, but there was nothing in the pictures that gave a sense of scale. Here's the other picture I have:



    I think this type of image might actually be a decal, which would account for the level of detail, but I could be wrong on that.

    Either way it's a sharp looking pipe. This is a clay pipe? Who makes it?

    Ah, so the site I got that picture from stole and modified it themselves. Not surprising.

    Yes, this is a sad but true state of affairs for all artists on the Internet. It is a constant battle between wanting to have your work seen and realizing that no matter how hard you try you'll never really control the images again. I'm a member of an artist's forum and it never ceases to amaze me what happens. A while back a woman posted a thread where a company in India had taken images of her artwork (watercolor paintings of flowers) and was using them to make pillow cases by simply cropping the image to remove her signature. She only found out about it when she happened to walk into TJ Maxx and see the pillowcases with her paintings on them!

    Try this one; another Le Peltier for another board:


    It looks like it can be a fairly complex work.

    That's hard to believe and says a lot. I wonder if she bought a pillow? Probably.
