Henri Sorensen: Smooth Acorn with Horn Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 002-784-0025

Like many artisan makers, Henri Sørensen entered the craft through his love of pipe smoking, a hobby he shared with his brother. Originally a glazier by trade, Sørensen had always held an affinity for old-school craftsmanship, so it didn't take long for the Danish carver to decide to make a pipe of his own. As a craftsman, Sørensen takes inspiration from Denmark's rich pipe-making history, with his pipes reflecting the tutelage he received from fellow carvers like Jens "Tao" Nielsen, Tom Eltang, and Lasse Skovgaard. That being said, Sørensen's pipes are distinctly his own, as each piece is imbued with the Danish carver's unique creative aesthetic.

A handsome showcase of Sørensen's style, this Acorn features a plump, full-bodied bowl that flares from its firm, pointed heel to its broad, rounded rim. A low-set transition pairs the shapely bowl to a slightly upturned shank and a demurely curved saddle stem. Mirroring the bowl, the shank flares as it exits the transition, its gradual expansion, coupled with its gentle lift, drawing the eye to the stem and its accompanying accent. Said accent is a darkly colored band of horn that perfectly matches the shaping of the stem's rounded base and complements its shadowy hues. A contrast-rich smooth finish completes this ensemble and highlights gorgeous flame grain throughout the stummel.
