Yuki Tokutomi: Smooth Bent Pot with Plateau (Yuki)
Product Number: 002-477-0018
A simple, sturdy, playful bent Dublin design of compact proportions, this Tokutomi Pipe Company briar bears the name of the master-artisan's own daughter, indicating that its design and creation was largely her responsibility. (Hiroyuki himself typically handles drilling and engineering on T.P.C. pipes, with shaping, sandblasting, and detail-work going to either Yuki or her mother, Kazue.) Overall it is a fine piece of pocket-friendly length, albeit also reassuringly solid substance, rendered in smooth, clean, charming form, and offering quite a bit of lovely flame grain and birdseye alike for good measure.
