Welcome! I am glad you have come to visit my site. Please take a look around, and do not hesitate to contact me with any questions!
I was born and raised in Fort Worth, Texas. Growing up, I was always interested in creating things. From legos, to art classes, to wood working, my childhood was filled with creation and design. After high school, I attended Texas A&M University studying architecture.
In the summer of 2009 while in college at Texas A&M, a friend of mine introduced me to pipe smoking. I didnt know it at the time, but that was the beginning of an incredible journey of making pipes. Instead of buying a pipe, I set out to make one with the knowledge available online. I have always enjoyed wood working and making things, and thought making a pipe would be a fun project. That fun project has turned into something of an obsession.
Over the course of the next 9 years, I honed my craft in several locations. In college, I studied architecture. In the six years of undergraduate and graduate level studies, I found that the same ideas and thoughts that shape architecture into a building are used to shape a block of briar into a pipe. Form, function, proportion, parti, detailing, and durability all apply equally to both architecture and pipe making. These principles inspire and drive my pipe making philosophy.
About My Pipes
All of my pipes are hand crafted from the finest briar available, shaped and finished by hand. Each pipe is fitted with a hand cut stem of Ebonite or Cumberland and will pass a pipe cleaner from the bit to the bowl.
All Trey Rice Pipes are guaranteed for a full year against burn out, barring abusive smoking practices. It is my hope that you are thrilled with your Trey Rice Pipe and I will make every effort to satisfy any issues you might have.
If you are not fully satisfied with your pipe, you may return it unsmoked and undamaged within 14 days for a full refund (not including shipping).
If you would like to make a return, please contact me so that all the appropriate arrangements can be made.
