Kudret Gezer

As a young boy, Kudret was fascinated by older brother Sevket's carvings.  In 1977, at the age of twelve, Kudret began two years of intense study under the brother.  After completing his apprenticeship, he was an independent carver of small pipes for the Turkish market.  In 1985, Kudret and younger brother Mesut formed a partnership with Sevket that lasted five years.  It was during this period that a new era of Kudret carving began to emerge.  Today, his distinctive portraits, with their unusual floral work, are highly prized.  Many of the medallion pipes carry his signature, as well.
