Bill Shalosky: Sandblasted Horn (686) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 002-720-0239

When asked about the pipes that inspired him, Bill Shalosky points to "every pipe ever made," which makes sense when viewing the diverse range of shapes within his portfolio. His work can range from classic shape-chart standards to highly stylized, Danish-inspired pieces, but whatever Shalosky ends up crafting, his love of pipe making, in all its many aspects, is on full display. He has fashioned pieces for BriarWorks, Smoker's Haven, and Chheda Pipes, so he has considerable experience, which is clearly evident when considering this Horn.

Unlike traditional Horns, this piece possesses a more defined transition, one that clearly delineates the bowl from the shank. Nonetheless, this design retains the form's characteristic curvature, which begins at the flared rim and continues through the subtly bent shank-and-stem arrangement. The aforementioned rim is a broad, elliptical oval that comes to a subtle point at its fore, creating an implied momentum that keeps the entire shape looking active in profile. The oval shank and gently curved saddle stem provide a touch of gesture to the composition and foster a comfortable smoking posture. A dark sandblast dresses the stummel and highlights gorgeous grain across the briar's surface.
