Randy has been making pipes since the mid 1970s and currently produces about 1000 pipes per year. He uses Grecian Plateau and Ebauchon briar. He treats the briar with hot oil to enhance its beauty and smoking qualities. Previous to pipe making, he pursued an art degree in college, worked as a carpenter, and met wood Sculptor Ray Holt (Pappy), with whom he served a two year apprenticeship. He worked for two years for a Florida based pipe company before striking out on his own. The Ovation is Randy's top of the line pipe.
