American Estates: Mark Tinsky Christmas Tanblast Bent Dublin (Two Star) (2020) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 004-009-19633
Many pipe makers and companies will design a new finish each year for their Christmas lines, adorning an assortment of shapes with a festive color palette and/or accent. Mark Tinsky, instead, fashions one, singular shape and dresses it in a variety of finishes. For 2020's release, the American carver has opted for a robustly proportioned and lithely bent Dublin. The sandblasted finish on this example is spectacular, with tight waves of ring grain creeping up the flanks of the towering bowl. What's more, the stummel's light tan stain will gradually darken over with time and use, developing a patina with each bowl that's enjoyed.-Gabriel Bass
