- I’ve been making pipes since 2015. It all started when, knowing I had always had a knack for woodworking, a friend asked me to repair his pipe. I became more interested in the craft of pipe-making the more I dug around the internet, scouring websites, YouTube, and forums for information.
I have since attended the Chicago Pipe Show twice, where I had the pleasure of meeting many great artisan pipe-makers.
Being completely self-learned in pipe-making, I understand the importance of always striving to better my craft and to elevate my own aesthetics, so it may reflect on my work artistically. I am really honored that you have taken an interest in my work, and look forward to share all that I put into my pipe-crafting with you.
I use Italian briar and German Ebonite for all my pipes and take imaginative approaches to shaping and staining. I sincerely hope you will enjoy my work.
