Question: Why was the use of clay pipes important?

Pipe impermeability reduces the risk of effluent accidentally leaking into the surrounding soil, whilst the resistance of vitrified clay to chemical attack makes it a safe conduit for virtually all chemicals and a natural choice where particularly aggressive ground conditions are encountered.

How are clay pipes made?

How Clay Pipes are Made. For crafting clay pipes, the clay is typically ground in a mill and mixed with water so that it provides a smooth, workable texture. A lump of clay is then rolled to form what will be the shank and stem, while a larger blob is shaped on one end for the bowl shape.
