Bill Shalosky initially began learning how to make pipes whilst working in the Smokers' Haven Workshop making the Smokers' Haven Hand-Mades, Buckeye Pipes, & Chheda Pipes. Now based in Nashville, Tennessee, he has perfected his craft and is producing his own line of pipes under the Shalosky name. These fine pipes are made from the finest cured briar, and Bill hand cuts each stem from top grade German Ebonite. A graduate of the Columbus College of Arts & Design, he focused on wood turning/sculpture, ceramics and art history. Bill is also an experienced pipe smoker & collector. His tastes range from a variety of shapes and styles, and his production has influences of many pipe makers and his own artistic designs from his studies. The most impressive aspect of his pipes, is the detail in craftsmanship. The drilling and connections are perfect, and his stems are cut thin and comfortable.
