Flemming Petersen Smooth Sitter with Horn

Product Number: 004-001-5883

Who is Flemming Petersen? A man of mystery. Finding information on this late pipemaker has proven largely fruitless, with nothing to go one beyond his allegedly having worked with Sixten Ivarsson. While that might not sound promising put simply in writing, looking at this single example of his work (the only one we've yet come across), it does appear quite believable. The long horn ferrule, the fine stem-work, the smooth and lyrical lines, the fine transition - all have the look of a pipe whose maker was steeped in Sixten's pioneering style. Two things in particular do suggest a personal divergence however, namely the vertically-oriented sitter theme (at least, I've yet to see a Sixten in this style), as well as a clearly deliberate, organic asymmetry, akin to that which would later emerge from the Japanese school.

So why is Flemming such an enigma? My theory is that he may simply of been one of those skilled, yet not particularly well-known pipemakers who unfortunately passed before widespread internet access could see their names readily disseminated.
