David Huber Pipes3 Total
It is not unusual to come across a skilled pipe maker with a background in things like architecture, industrial design, or some other form of wood-working such as cabinetry, or the making of furniture or musical instruments. It is unusual to come across a skilled pipe maker whose background was theatre. In fact, David Huber is the only one we've heard of so far.
That is fine. Whatever skills he needed to learn from scratch when he started out, in terms of designing and creating functional and attractive wooden objects, he clearly learned well. What can you expect in a Huber pipe? Take a little Grechukhin, Gotoh, and various American artisans as inspiration, make the sandblasts sound in definition and texture, and scale the pipes themselves anywhere from rather dainty, to quite voluptuous. In short, some very nice pipes indeed.
