Randy Wiley Galleon Rusticated Acorn (55)

Product Number: 004-009-5673

Randy Wiley doesn't sandblast his pipes as tradition, the way the majority of American pipe makers; and you have to ask yourself "why"? From what I've seen with most of his rusticated pieces, he certainly seems skilled at texturing, and I'm absolutely positive he would excel by leaps and bounds. Perhaps he's trying to avoid the health risks or maybe it's just an aesthetic preference. To each his own I suppose, but what is rather amusing is how many of his rusticated pieces seem to look like they were sandblasts at first glance. The rustication on this boldly simple, sculptural Acorn, for instance, has a somewhat lightly deft touch, in what is probably a 2-step process: initially carving a basic rustication followed by etching the surface with a much smaller, sharper tool, creating nearly microscopic, grain-like marks.
