While visiting the county fair at age sixteen I came across a booth were a man was selling meerschaum pipes, and I was immediately fascinated. He had a few blocks of meerschaum for sale and I bought one and carved my first pipe. That was over 20 years ago, I recently decided I wanted a nice pipe and being some one who has always made, fixed, and done everything for myself decided to just jump in and make my own pipe. I have enjoyed this journey immensely and love making pipes for people to enjoy. I make pipes in San Diego California in my small garage workshop. Please feel free to contact me with any questions you might have.
