Olie Sylvester (B.F.A., graphic design, 1999) works as a creative and production manager for GE, but devotes his spare time to his love of tobacco smoking pipes. Olie’s line of handmade pipes, Monstrosity, is an artistic and unique approach to traditional pipe making. At www.OomPaul.com (OomPaul is a classic shape of tobacco smoking pipe) you can view his pipes and check out his podcast devoted to famous carvers from around the world. Olie is married to Venessa (Miller) Sylvester (B.F.A., art history, 1991; M.A., art history 1996) and together they make fine art. They will have a Web site up soon of their current work for sale.
