Pipes have been divided by region where they were made. Perhaps we can recognize an English style, an Italian style, and even a Danish style. But where does that leave a North American style? Where does a pipe by Tonni Nielsen, who lives in Kentucky, or a Rolando Negoita, who lives in New York fit in? What exactly is a North American style pipe? Do Noth American carvers borrow from everyone else or do they have specific characteristics that make them unique? Are North American carvers doing things that no one else is?
