Rolando Negoita

Rolando Negoita pipes are a testament to the meeting between an artist and his true materials.

“When it comes to pipes, I am whimsically attracted to my old knowledge and love for hand making things. It is as if I find it impossible to allow machinery to interfere with the creative process of modeling wood into pipes.

Rolando Negoita pipes are a testament to the meeting between an artist and his true materials.

“When it comes to pipes, I am whimsically attracted to my old knowledge and love for hand making things. It is as if I find it impossible to allow machinery to interfere with the creative process of modeling wood into pipes.

I have always been fascinated by the union of the functional and the aesthetic, and I view both my pipes and my knives as functional sculptures. I think of all objects I make as being tightly linked stylistically to a world of story and myth” – Roland Negoita.

Pipe artistry at its best

Negoita was born in Romania and studied arts in Bucharest. Because of the poor selection of pipes available to him there, he began carving his own pipes. After finishing his studies in the capital of Romania, Negoita moved to the United States, where he became a professor of jewelry and design.

In Rolando Negoita Pipes his understanding and appreciation of shapes and, even more importantly, how materials and design combine is apparent, and each pipe bears the expression of a true artist.
