American Estates: Scott Thile Sandblasted Apple (401) (2018) (Unsmoked)
Product Number: 004-009-12432
Scott Thile, universally acclaimed as the nicest guy on Earth, is as accomplished a musician as he is a pipemaker. Creativity oozes out of him and beads up like condensation on a cold beer at a summer picnic, and is as refreshing as that beer. Here we see a seemingly simple rendition of a straight Apple, but the proportions commend it as something a bit different. A wide shank and stem combination tapers gradually to the lip button, drawing more attention to the relatively diminutive bowl. Contrast stain and a medium-deep sandblast bring visual and tactile stimulation to the composition, which is light, vertically compact, and a delight to handle.- Chuck Stanion
