Mark Tinsky: Smooth Billiard with Spalted Tamarind
Product Number: 002-035-0065
While many American artisans display Danish, English, and/or Industrial Design influences in their work, Mark Tinsky tends towards a mix of English, traditional Italian, and Pesaro styles. In this case, the result is a straight Billiard with classic English lines, yet rendered at a scale more commonly seen from traditional Italian or Pesaro artisans. And I have to say that the English lines and relative proportions do effectively serve to lend this briar a lighter balance and poise in profile, compared to the emphasis on bold heartiness often found in Italian Billiards of comparable size.
