ABOUT THE MASTER CARVER R. KARACA
Ramazan KARACA was born at 1958 a small village called Turkmen Tokat located in Eskisehir, Turkey.
Ramazan KARACA had grown in the village untill his school age came. The villiga he was born is also known as one of the best raw meerschaum deposits. So we can say he was born in meerschaum and grown in meerschaum. All his family and relatives were mining and were meerschaum hunting underground.
When the scholl years came he moved to the city. His school years and meerschaum carving years were almost started at the same time period. Some of his relatives from his village were master carvers of those days at the city and some were working for master carvers. Ramzan started to help them and his meerschaum carving career started at elementary school days as a part time apprenticeship. In 1979 he completed his school education as well as his meerschaum carving education. He turned back to village in 1979 as an educated master carver. He had worked with his brother Veli until1988 and after he started to work alone.
He still lives in the village and For last 10 years he runs his family farm operations and carves as well.
The R. KARACA collection features remarkably detailed full body figured animals and portraits.

GENERAL INFORMATION ABOUT MEERSCHAUM PIPES
Meerschaum is a very rare mineral, a kind of hard white clay. Light and porous structure of the pipe keeps the smoke cool and soft. The pipe itself is a natural filter which absorbs the nicotine. Meerschaum is the most flavorful and beautiful pipe you can own.
Because of this peculiarity, meerschaum pipes slowly change their colors to different tones of gold and dark brown. This adds an esthetic enjoyment to its great smoking pleasure. The longer a pipe is smoked the more valuable it becomes due to the color change. Today many old and rare meerschaums have found a permanent place in museums and private collections.
Pipes are made of high quality Eskisehir Meerschaum which is very well known by experts. Unlike briar, meerschaum does not burn. Meerschaum pipes do not need pre-smoking to have a good quality performance. You can get perfect satisfaction with the very first smoking. Unlike a briar pipe, which must be dried after each smoke, the meerschaum can be smoked many times a day because of its absorbing qualities. Every pipe comes in a completely custom fitted case. Allmouthpieces and pipe-cases are handmade individually after the production of the pipes. Each pipe is a hand crafted art of the masters
