We’re a few days away from the New York Pipe Show and working to finish up the last of our work to be displayed. We’re currently planning to bring 13 pipes which is more than either of us had anticipated.
It’s been a fast couple months as we work to develop our techniques and craftsmanship to make sure we meet our own very high standards of workmanship. Besides the technical aspects of pipe making a lot of the enjoyment comes from developing our own personal style of carving. When someone sees our pipes we want it to be clear that this pipe came from Cape May.
A few weeks ago we had the honor of working with photographer David Todd McCarthy on a project that he is doing for Cape May Magazine. The experience was very exciting and humbling to have someone take such an interest in our work to want to spend their day learning about us and what we do. The article will be featured in the Summer 2015 issue of Cape May Magazine.
