Ray Kurusu: Smooth Nosewarmer Apple with Boxwood Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-637-0023
Simultaneously affable and streamlined, this handy Nosewarmer Apple from Ray Kurusu shows the carver is just as adept at handling a tight-knit classic as he is an organically evocative number. Indeed, with its plump cheeking, comforting substance in hand, and overall very compact size, I can readily imagine this will be a jewel amongst your collection. Finished in warm contrast, vast pools of birdseye live on each cheek, divided by a neat lane of cross-grain. Complemented by a warm boxwood accent and a ringlet of the same at the streamlined stem, it's a charming, inviting piece to be sure.- Daniel Bumgardner
