I have an immense passion for pipe making It all started when I was little… I have always loved creating. As a kid, I would draw pictures, paint, whittle, and build things out of wood. In high school, I began to do pottery and was soon spending all of my time in the studio. I quickly learned that I had a knack for fine art and eventually carving. Wood soon became my life. I began to build furniture, jewelry boxes, etc. One day, while in college, I found one of my grandpa's old pipes. I remembered that he was a great pipe smoker back when i was little. It was an old “Shalom” briar. I smoked it on and off for about a month and then decided then, based on my woodworking skills, that I could produce my own pipe. I obtained some briar and some pre-made stems and went to work. That was in 2006… My pipes are made entirely by hand and each is completely original and unique. These pipes are made one at a time, from start to finish, with the absolute best briar and ebonite. All pipes are stamped with “Morgan Pipes”, my logo and all pipes will be numbered (ie. 15-xx). “15” for the year and “xx” representing the corresponding number pipe that year. I find that the best pipes come from a compromise between the briar and the pipe maker. I don’t work with any plans or sketches unless a customer wants a specific shape. I do not currently grade any of my pipes based on quality level. Every pipe I make is the best i have to offer at that moment. From time to time you make see a pipe stamped “RAW” or “Titan” . RAW pipes are generally void of any finish (bare wood) and sport a proprietary pre made stem. Titan grade pipes are exceptionally large pipes. I am self taught, but many have participated in my education.. Thank you all for your support and friendship. As long as I have customers to admire my pipes, I will continue to produce one of a kind briar beauties for the world to enjoy. All image photo credits courtesy of Morgan Pipes.
