Italian Estates: Becker Sandblasted Tomato (Two Club) (2008)

Product Number: 004-006-9265

Though having learned almost everything he knew about pipemaking from a man of very traditional tastes, his father Fritz Becker, Paolo wound up setting off on his own individually artistic direction. It's evidently clear in this Tomato - with its exquisite bend in shank, attached to a rather highly perched, softly organic bowl - that sticking to tradition wasn't going to settle well with him. Particularly interesting is the way the bowl, a form of so much more massive than the shank and stem, is made to actually appear lighter. This is due in part to the seemingly fragile transition and sloped underside of the pipe, transforming its mass into a light billow gently rolling off the shank.
