enough about Me
My Name is Eric Weaver and this website is where you can view and buy my handcrafted pottery and fine briar tobacco pipes. I live and work in Washburn Wisconsin on the shores of the Chequemegon Bay of Lake Superior with my wife and two young daughters . I have been a potter for 12 years and a pipemaker for 14.
SeaSmoke Pipes and Pottery is my new brand name. It evokes a sense of place and process. Sea smoke is a naturally occurring mist or fog that develops as cold air travels over warmer water. Here on Lake Superior it is a glorious thing to behold.
My work involves fire, heat, smoke, air, earth, and wood. Whether it is a handmade briar tobacco pipe or a piece of wood fired or electric fired pottery I try to let the process of making put it's stamp on the finished product. My intention is for my work to look at home in the natural world as much as possible and to mirror the wonder found therein.
