Yunus Ege

Son of a meerschaum miner, Yunus was born in EskiŞehir in 1948. Yunus' father supplied block meerschaums to Master Carver H�seyin Yanik and urged him to enroll his son as an apprentice. The young Yunus studied under the excellent tutelage of Master H�seyin Yanik from 1965 to 1968 and learned all aspects of portraiture and pipe making. During his more than three decades of meerschaum pipe carving, Yunus has worked in partnership with Salim Şener and other carvers. Over the years, he has perfected his carving style and sculpts about 300 pipes a year. The wide variety of full contour portrait and animal pipes of the Yunus Collection are well-balanced and distinctive.
