Misc. Estates: Dirk Claessen Sandblasted Bent Billiard Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 004-008-8321
Belgian carver Dirk Claessen moved to Spain in 2010 and has been plying his pipe-making craft since, receiving instruction from several Danish and Swedish artisans as well as from German master Rainer Barbi. This distinctive bent Billiard presents Danish design cues in the soft contours and easy lines presented throughout the composition. The tall, rounded bowl is demarcated by a defined transition, then followed by a languid, gestural curl of the shank and stem, the latter turned down for smoking comfort. It's dressed in a rustic sandblast and is elegant in profile.-Angela Robertson
