Silver Gray Pipes
are a unique artisan brand. Silver Gray, the carver, and namesake for this line is one of the few female pipe carvers in the USA and world-wide.
What is this? Well fellow brothers and sisters of the briar…
This is the X-Pipe!!!
This is a pipe I created by request of Mark Irwin. He has a book in the works about a special pipe. To find out more about this pipe – and it origins and journey’s – look for the book at the Vegas International Pipe Show coming in October! There are also more pictures of this pipe and it’s blasted sister on my gallery page!
The X-Pipe: A Mystagogia for Pipe Smokers is a rich blend of pipe lore, contemplative practice and academic parody, double-pressed in the story of two pipemen in their long quest to unravel the truth about a miraculous pipe found in the Vatican Secret Archives.
I am not accepting commissions. Look for my pipes here on my website or on SmokingPipes.com. I am busy at the bench and should have a few pipes up on my website in the next week or so! I am also in the process making NAP button stems for existing Peterson Pipes that I have purchased. I am not available to make a stem for your estate pipe. I am also adding the NAP button to my own shapes.
I was honored by the judges of the Las Vegas (West Coast) Pipe Show in 2018 and was awarded……..
BEST PIPE OF SHOW! The only female pipe carver to attain this honor!
Thanks so much for your support! Stay smokey, Silver
