Hand Made Pipes and Custom Pipes
by David S. Huber

A tribute to a time-honored tradition with modern appeal, my work pushes the boundaries of briar tobacco pipe aesthetics while maintaining the highest standards of craftsmanship and internal aerodynamic engineering, providing the owner with an elegant personal accessory sure to stand out in any crowd and among the most refined tobacco tasting experiences available.

Each pipe is made by hand from briar burl, sourced from the Mediterranean region, and includes a hand cut mouthpiece which is made from German ebonite rod stock. Every piece is created entirely by me in my workshop at Liberty Arts, a sculpture arts collaborative, in Durham, NC. Accent woods occasionally adorn my work, including boxwood and African paduk. Completed pieces can be found in four finishes: black, red, natural, and high contrast.

My work has received multiple awards and honors since I began making pipes five years ago, including winning the North American Pipe Carving Contest in 2013, being interviewed for the Pipes Magazine Radio Show in 2014, receiving “Best Pipe in Show” at the Kansas City Pipe Show in 2015, and receiving an eight page spread in Pipes and Tobaccos Magazine in June 2017.

My work can be purchased from SmokingPipes.com, SmokersHaven.com, BlueRoomBriars.com, or PulversBriar.com and directly from me via Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter. You can also contact me to inquire about a commission or if you have any questions about my work.
