Alexander Tupitsyn

Alexander Tupitsyn turned 30 years old in 2013. He entered workshop where already worked Vladimir Grechukhin and Sergey Dyomin in 2008. The PS Studio project was launched that time – Alexander and Sergey started to make high-quality pipes of usual shapes and of competitive prices under the guidance of Vladimir Grechukhin.
Also before starting to work under his own name he went through serious studies in pipe repairs and work on estate pipes. The first pipes under A. Tupitsyn’s brand were presented on Saint Petersburg Pipe Show 2012.
Alexander still works on PS Studio project, adopting practices from his teacher Vladimir Grechukhin. The pipe-maker is direct successor of Saint Petersburg school of pipe-making which arose in 60-s of the last century. One can feel some influence of Danish style in his pipes – outstanding artist of facets Paul Ilsted in particular. Paul visited PS Studio workshop in summer of 2012 sharing his techniques and pipe-making vision with this young pipe-maker.
