French Estates: Bruyere St. Claude Smooth Stack
Product Number: 004-003-4557
Typically in Stack shapes, I find that the bowl's added height can often come across as awkward and disproportional. In this rendition from Bruyere St. Claude, though, I'm not met with that visual discomfort. Thanks to the saddle stem, the pipe gradually progresses from the thin stem to the thicker shank and finally to the tall bowl. In this way, the visual weight is tiered, making the bowl's extra-height come across as less harsh. It's a well thought out iteration, and one that I'm quite fond of.-Truett Smith
