This is a video from a friend of mine, Kostas Gourvelos which creates often pipes based in the Golden Ratio, you can hear him telling the details in english:

I post this video for information purposes only, i am not a middleman propoting anyone, i just want to show you what kind of pipes he creates in Greece based in mathematics and engineering with an "artistic" touch. I hope that you will like it and will gine an inspiration to those who make smoking pipes.

I enjoyed meeting and pleasant conversation with Kostas at the Chicago Pipe Show 2017.

The golden ratio is much discussed in pipe design. All art really. Pipes, buildings, chairs, sculpture, you name it. It's more strictly applied in traditional shapes, but even modern, free form design pipes can't deviate much without looking 'off'.
