    What say you ???

    "The fact is, squire, the moment a man takes to a pipe, he becomes a philosopher. It's the poor man's friend; it calms the mind, soothes the temper, and makes a man patient under difficulties. It has made more good men, good husbands, kind masters, indulgent fathers, than any other blessed thing on this universal earth."
    -"Sam Slick, the clockmaker" aka T.C.Haliburton

    It certainly is a beautiful work of art, but I like my pipes to be functional as well, so I don't think it would be for me. The question I always ask when I look at a pipe is:"Can I see myself smoking this pipe?" If the answer is no, as it is here, then I won't buy it.

    He has a great style and his other pipes are more functional. Smokingpipes had a good blog on him just recently, as a fan of art nouveau he certainly got my attention.

    I think he is an artist,not a pipe maker. That sculpture is beautiful no doubt, but to me it is non functional and not my style. I see these types of pipes all the time from numerous artists and if you like that more power to you, but give me a Dublin or a Billiard any time I want my pipe to look like a pipe and not some work of art.
