Davide Iafisco: Sandblasted Bent Egg Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-702-0142
David Iafisco boasts a wide range of creative influences, including Teddy Knudsen, Claudio Cavicchi, Jeff Gracik, and Adam Davidson. Reflecting his various inspirations, Iafisco's portfolio showcases an equally diverse range of shapes, ranging from Freehand-inspired designs to more traditional shape chart standards. No matter the shape, however, Iafisco's creativity always shines through, with his distinctive eye for stunning finishes and his keen sense for proportionality often taking center stage.
This bent Egg is a fine example of Iafisco's style and represents the more traditional end of his shaping spectrum. The bowl here is quite tall and boasts a delightful stoutness to its gently rounded walls. A lifted heel lends a touch of verticality to the bowl and adds a touch of gesture to the overall form, the shank-and-stem arrangement emerges from the low-set transition and snakes into an elegant S-curve that encourages a comfortable smoking posture. A dark sandblast dresses the stummel and unveils whispers of growth rings across the bowl's flanks, producing a wealth of visual and tactile detail to admire. A white accent adorns the junction and ties the entire form together, its vibrant hues combining the stummel's stain for a dressy palette. Handsome, flowing, and all together charming, this piece is sure to be a welcome addition to any collector's rotation.--Davin Hylton
