It is not always easy to meet the pipe carver behind the wizardry he wields. Oftentimes this artisan and his enthusiasts are separated by thousands of miles of distance and vast gulfs of water. Sometimes there are language barriers that are very difficult to bridge, if not impossible. Luckily, we all speak one language here, and that language is the pipe. Images are ideal in an age were technology is able to bridge this gap and portray the many-worded dialogue of the pipe carver in his daily life. That is why we have chosen to include photos of Joao Reis individually and working on his vaunted briar creations. We hope that you enjoy them and we will continue to add more to the album in the future as new images become available.
