Blessed Christmas to all and happy feast of St. John the Evangelist. Thank you all for your support throughout my first year as a pipe maker, especially those who feed me ideas and those who purchased a pipe. Several of my pipes have sold through Tewksbury, and I am very grateful to Dave, Brian and Gwyneth of the before mentioned store for all their support and input. I don't know yet what the new year will bring but I look forward to new and refined ideas,
I decided to play around with a bit of a simpler design. This tobacco pipe has elegance in its design and fire in its heart. The red dye I found is so brilliant and striking that it leaps off the pipe and draws the eye in.
