G. Penzo: Sandblasted Bulldog (Shell) (B)
Product Number: 002-782-0059
Giacomo Penzo has a background in industrial design and has used that education and facility to design pipes of wondrous shapes, especially noticeable in his renditions of the classics, like this sandblasted Bulldog. It maintains a low attitude, with the bowl vertically compressed to contribute to the low center of gravity and to the unifying theme of the pipe. The waistline rides just above the crisp transition and introduces a wide upper bowl and rim, which is flat to support that theme. The grain is particularly nice beneath the single beadline, running horizontally across the flanks, while the geometrically precise shank offers sharp ridgelines and a resolute stance. It's a classic Bulldog but with the modification of a supremely talented carver.- Chuck Stanion
