American Estates: Tim West Smooth Paneled Bent Egg
Product Number: 004-009-11984
Tim West made his first pipe 52 years ago and became a full-time pipemaker in 1975. That's the kind of experience it takes to produce a pipe like this, one that whimsically pokes at conventions. A paneled Egg, cinched at the waist, with an underside of plateau. What Tim has done is provide a traditionally rounded Egg and paneled it for structure, then made each panel concave. Smooth roundness contrasted by geometric paneling, all resting on a foundation of natural, craggy and gnarly plateau. Whether the combination works is up to the individual, but it's inarguable that Tim West has produced a composition here that blends seemingly discordant elements in a large and creative smoking instrument.- Chuck Stanion
