ANNOUNCEMENT: 6-12 month
sabbatical commencing June 1, 2014
For many years I have been
working towards my dream of sailing a small sailboat across
the Atlantic ocean single-handed.
This spring (June 1, 2014)is ramping up to be my official departure date.
I will be leaving from Toronto, making my way down the St.Lawrence
to Newfoundland where I'll spring off for the crossing making
first landfall in Fallmouth England, utimately arriving
in Flushing, Netherlands.
I have built a complete engraving studio aboard my sailboat, Zeelandia, and I intend to keep
engraving while "out there" I am currently booked right
now up until departure. I will only be taking orders from
this point on for delivery when I return. Please feel free to contact me via email. I am happy to discuss custom
work and take definite advance orders. I apologize to anyone
who hoped to get their pipe silver delivered during the next 6-12 months but I will definitely be back, ready
to get back into the full swing of things on my return late this fall or
spring of 2015 (depending on weather patterns in the north Atlantic)
In the interim, please consider my good friend, and amazing metalsmith,
Murray Huggins of Colin Kyo Bagpipes
for all your silver, nickel and hand engraving needs.
Also keep in mind that you can purchase plain metal mounted pipes from any maker of your choice and I can engrave them for you upon my return.
please contact me
for trade pricing.
