Luigi Viprati Smooth Bent Pot (Two Clover)

Product Number: 004-006-9262

Without writing Viprati myself, I really can't tell if the sinuous gesture of this piece draws more from the Pesaro school or Ed Burak, the dean of American pipe designers whose work has had a worldwide influence on the thinking and the work of contemporary pipe makers. My experience, however, in asking artists and artisans of their influences has always been met with a reaction of hesitance, followed by stealthy dodging, anyway. The secret to creativity is knowing how to hide your sources, after all. I can say definitively, however, that this pipe - with its goose-neck stem and shank, curving gracefully and blooming into a vaguely floral Pot shaped bowl - is just plain beautiful, stolen goods or not.
