Smooth Amphora with Bamboo

Product Number: 002-298-0201

The ancient Greek amphora is a curious thing, a capacious, yet beautifully shaped and slender-necked vessel which was used both in ceremonial rewards and as the standard shipping container of the day. Imagine, if you will, one of today's victorious athletes being honored through the gifting of an intricately engraved big-rig trailer full of olive oil. If the idea seems absurd, I suspect that's largely simply a matter of form: an amphora is graceful and curvaceous, a box-trailer is, well, shaped like a box. Though Rolando Negoita's own Amphora design turns the shaping of the historical vessel on its head (understandably, as who would want a pipe a with a long, slender-necked tobacco chamber after all), it also does an excellent job of capturing the same sense of long, smooth, gently curving lines and voluptuous, but by no means weighty form. Rolando's design also happens to make for a superbly easy and natural feel in hand, not to mention a remarkably fine way to show off beautiful grain, like that which this briar happens to possess in spades.
