I consider myself a freehand maker first and foremost as no pipe I make is ever exactly the same, and most my designs are uniquely my own. I do some classic work or my own interpretations thereof but mostly like to be a little more daring.
My journey into pipemaking started back in 1997 at the age of 20.
I used soapstone instead of briar and had so much fun in the process that I started to make pipes for friend all around the soapstone smoked hot and broke easily.
