American Estates: David Huber Smooth Volcano with Boxwood (1118) (2018) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 004-009-21186

Huber likes to push boundaries in his work and this Volcano certainly does that with its precise line work and gorgeous aesthetics. Two ridgelines emanate from the sides of the high-set rim and curve around the bowl's flanks, eventually merging together to wrap around the bowl's lower fore. They create a forward-jutting heel that perfectly mimics the rim's forward canted posture, giving the piece its striking silhouette and showcasing David's precise, keen eye for subtle details. Following the almost non-existent transition, the short, round shank kicks upward before terminating at the softly downturned mouthpiece, with its domed base seamlessly continuing the shape of the shank. Huber has dressed the stummel in a gorgeous, ruby-hued stain, showcasing plenty of lively flame grain as if it seemingly erupted out of the bowl and is flowing down the flanks. Topping things off, a pale boxwood accent adorns the junction and adds some tastefully reserved contrast to the composition.
