American Estates: Alex Florov Smooth Tomato with Mammoth (2017) (Unsmoked) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 004-009-14714
Alex Florov enjoys using flaring, upturned shanks and teardrop lines in his work, and both of those elements are showcased in this Tomato from 2017. In profile, the bowl is squat and rounded, meeting the shank at a crisply defined transition that prompts cheeking about the lower bowl. Said shank, then, flares and curls upward before being balanced out by the short stem's downward turn. Especially striking is the ridgeline along the left flank formed by the teardrop cross section of the shank, and it continues its trajectory all the way through the bowl's fore before terminating at the rim. Dressed in a deep, chestnut stain, the briar's natural grain patterns are alluringly highlighted and accented by mammoth at the shank end. Unsmoked.-Truett Smith
