New Pipes: Ser Jacopo: De Divina Proportione Sandblasted Bent Billiard with Silver (S2)  

Product Number: 002-171-1882

Though not so widely known as his student and collaborator, Leonardo da Vinci, Franciscan friar/mathematician/literary translator Luca Bartolomeo de Pacioli was an accomplished renaissance man in his own right, publishing original works on subjects ranging from mathematics for merchants, to the game of chess, to one of the foundational texts of modern-day magic-tricks and numerical puzzles. His best-known work, however, was De Divina Proportione, illustrated by Leonardo, which focused on the application of the Golden Ratio to art and architecture.

Given the late Giancarlo Guidi's love for art, it should be little surprise that he was familiar with Pacioli's De Divina Proportione, and as fate would have it, this special Ser Jacopo series, inspired by the idea of applying the Golden Ratio to pipe design, would be one of the Pesaro school founder's last great projects.

But the second example we've seen from this series, this briar is presented in bent Billiard form, and, unsurprisingly, a thoroughly elegant one, despite it's considerable size. Deep-chambered, packed with ring grain and finished with an earthy/smoky contrast, easy in hand and a simple delight of form and line, even by Ser Jacopo standards this is an exceptional creation.
