Savinelli Autograph Partially Sandblasted Freehand (4) (Replacement Stem)

Product Number: 004-006-8674

Symmetros is a Greek word, and the ancient Greeks used symmetry as a basic organizing and philosophical principle, as did Roman, Romanesque, and Renaissance periods. Indeed, it is hard to think of any tradition, Western or otherwise, that does not include symmetry as a principle of good standards. The design code of the Freehand has no perfect model, and, in fact, has an expressionistic process that runs counter-intuitive to any such notion. The aesthetic "leaning" of this Autograph Freehand '4', with its horizontally curved transition and asymmetrical bowl cross-section, would probably not be considered beautiful by, say, Plato's standards, (he advocated the perfected measurements of the "golden proportions" or the "golden ratio"). Less the Western ideal, this pipe falls under the design philosophy, whether the pipe maker knows it or not, of the Japanese concept of wabi-sabi: wabi, interpreted as the imperfect quality of any object, and sabi, interpreted as the aspect of imperfect reliability, or limited mortality of any object.

The Autograph Freehand's "flawed beauty", and indeed all Freehands, can bring about, within us, a sense of serene melancholy and a spiritual longing, acknowledging, within us, three simple realities: nothing lasts, nothing is finished, and nothing is perfect.
