Winslow: Crown Smooth Billiard (Viking)
Product Number: 002-036-0651
Just now, I tipped this "Viking" up and looked at its rim as if it were a two-dimensional circle, and thought "That's what a pipe should be". A pipe should join the sum of its parts together in such a way that should feel finished, like a Japanese Enso: a zen symbol of complete wholeness, an "expression of the moment", if that makes sense. I admire Poul Winslow for making these kinds of pipes, wonderfully expressed in this Billiard. Like many depictions of Buddha himself, the bowl is especially round and content in style, which makes the pipe a true pleasure in hand; smooth as silk, and seeming to fill out your embrace, sending you into a deep meditative state.
