It was my pleasure to chat with the incredibly talented American carver Mr. Grant Batson. Grant has a keen artistic eye that really sets him apart and it was a lot of fun talking shop and ideas, not to mention road kill vittles with Mr. Batson. I hope you enjoy.
It was my pleasure to chat with collector extraordinaire Mr. Dustin Babitzke. I've seen portions of Dustin's collections at shows, but never got to chat to him about them. I had a great time picking his brain about his love of collecting pipes. If you look closely in this pic, not only will you see Dustin holding a pipe by one of his favorite carvers, the amazing Stephen Downie, but on the shelf in the background, you'll see one of my creations, Flora Cambriana 1. I hope you enjoy the podcast!
It was my pleasure to chat with American phenom carver Adam Remington. Watch this guy, if you can. The trajectory is stellar. If you can acquire one of his works, I would highly recommend you do it sooner rather than later. Listen to my chat with Adam and get to know the incredible talent behind one of the brightest new stars in the pipe world.
It was my pleasure to chat with American carver and founder of pipe maker's forum, Mr. Tyler Beard for episode 45. Not only has Tyler been incredibly influential over the years through his helping others via pipe maker's forum, but his work alone has also influenced many a budding carver. Listen to Tyler's beginnings, find out about his new move and change in careers, and other stuff I never ever knew about this really nice and talented American carver. I hope you enjoy!
On January 23rd, 2013 it was my pleasure to chat with the founder of Pipesmagazine.com, Mr. Kevin Godbee. I think you'll find this to be a very interesting behind the scenes glimpse into the mind of a guy who is truly excited about the various ways a pipe smoker can be entertained and catered to through digital media. Kevin's doing some great stuff and I hope you'll support his endeavors, especially after listening to the podcast.
