Bill Shalosky: Sandblasted Billiard (635) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-720-0204
Bill Shalosky's portfolio well demonstrates his affection for the classics of previous generations, with Billiards, Liverpools, Apples, and Brandys well represented in his portfolio. The American carver admires straightforward, practical designs, and he has used that as inspiration for his own style.
Shalosky's penchant for classic Anglo-French designs is reflected in this Billiard, the bowl upright and sturdy. The proportions between bowl and shank speak to its traditional aesthetics, the streamlined, sleek shank-and-stem arrangement lending support and a pleasant balance. It's dressed in a mahogany-stained, rather woodsy rustication, with a comfortably tapered stem of black vulcanite complementing the earth-tones of the stummel. This is a fine presentation from the American carver and quite the testament to his talents in shaping and finishing.-Gabriel Bass
