Ron Smith

Following some experimentation while taking a sculpture class at Walters State, Ron Smith began making pipes in 2014.  He has studied in the shops of recognized makers  Tim West, Jessie Jones and  Manfred Hortig and attended the Pipe Making Seminar in Chicago and the Workshop in Raleigh, NC hosted by David Huber and John Inge.
His work is influenced by the Danish school of pipe making, his teachers and many designers sculptural designers, particularly those from Germany, Japan and Eastern Europe.  However, many of his pipes strongly rely on classical design with the emphasis on practicality and functionality.
He has displayed and sold his works through the pipe shows in Columbus, St. Louis, Raleigh and Chicago, and through local galleries and shops in Tennessee.
You are invited to see his current works at this gallery and on his Facebook page.
