Misc. Estates: Chris Asteriou Smooth Pot with Bamboo (1063) (2021) (Unsmoked) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 004-008-8646

Drawing on a background in architecture and industrial design, Greek carver Chris Asteriou fashions some truly breathtaking pipes. The artisan takes inspiration from many different schools of design, but he somehow manages to synthesis his various influences into work that is singularly his own. This Pot deftly showcases Asteriou's elegant line work and deft use of accenting materials. The bowl here is a stocky and stout, its thick insulating walls tapering upward from a plump, rounded heel to a slightly tauter rim. The muscular bowl stands stoically at the fore of a comparatively slender shank-and-stem arrangement, one which ebbs from a subtly cheeked transition. Four knuckles of craggy bamboo extend the svelte shank, the organic material's warm hues and rugged texture offering some pleasing contrast to the rest of the stummel. A smoky smooth finish envelopes the briar and highlights fine strands of almost perfect straight grain along the bowl's flanks.
