Grant Batson is an accomplished woodworker from Nashville, Tennessee. Before making pipes, Grant and his brother Cory designed innovative guitars and started the Batson Guitar Company, which still operates today. A long time pipe- smoker, Grant only recently tried his hand at the craft of making pipes. He had excellent instruction from world renowned pipe makers, and a similar craftsmanship and aesthetic influence can be found in Grant's pipes. Grant is a very industrious and original pipe maker, consitently pushing the boundaries of design and shape and has quickly established himself as one of the must-follow individuals in the craft.
