My Workshop

My shop, nick-named AREA 51, well you can imagine. I do not take pipe making direction from Alien’s; however some of them look like I did. I let my imagination run wild and what comes out, I hope you love. I spend many hours with each pipe; it is a labor of love. Custom pipes are a passion – I get to interview the host, and then make the perfect pipe for them. Their personality is the key to this process. Enjoy looking around; let me know what you think about my work. Just go to my contact page and leave a comment, thanks.
