Unapologetically, a Western interpretation from Satou, a master carver considered a foremost keeper of traditional Japanese pipemaking (who was, by the way, one of the first briar pipe carvers in Japan in the 1940s), though this bent Billiard starkly falls into Danish neo-classicism - regardless of the fact that it is hardly cheeked, and with a compact muscularity that Japanese pipemakers tend to instill into their works. The shape's gesture is as pleasantly familiar as a teapot - the bowl verging on lofty, but inviting, due to its softly rounded facade, gently following the tapering enclosure at the rim. The transition from bowl to shank to stem has a flawless, serpentine-like smoothness, lifting in an unselfconsciously natural fashion just above the bowl. The grain, as you can plainly see, is perfect: the stain, perfect. It is truly a piece of which time doesn't seem to pass over: it just is.
