LB Yule pipes and more Dimiters info


I'm pleased to say that yesterday's post about Juris Dimiters brought in some more accurate and current information on him. He was NOT, as I previously reported, Russian - he is Latvian (I know, I know, I'm American... all those "foreign" countries are the same anyway...;) ) He is also still painting, and still painting pipes. His website is:

Fascinating artwork. I wish I could paint like that!

Today's picture is a promo shot of the 2002 Ligne Bretagne Yule pipes. We did these during our first December in France, which was a really bad idea because we were already more stressed than we should have been. I'm pleased with how they came out, but they were pretty bland as special-edition pipes go. We stopped making Yule pipes after 2003, but they WILL return, in (I hope) considerably fancier form, in some future December.
