S. Bang: Smooth Tomato (PH) (1835)
Product Number: 002-816-0007
A squat, Diplomat-like Tomato, this offering from Per Hansen of S. Bang walks a metaphorical tightrope between shapeliness and svelte, easy implied motion. Even within the workshop's overall body of work, it boasts a wide, comforting presence, somewhat accentuated by its squat, low center of gravity, not to mention its compressed oval shank and stem combination. And despite its relative corpulence, it manages to evoke the look of a lithe, eager smoker, and the sort of piece that isn't exactly lacking for stunning grain. That is to say it's the sort that practically announces its lively licks of flame from across the room, partially due to its vibrant ruby contrast. An awesome pipe.- Daniel Bumgardner
