Becker: Sandblasted Strawberry Wood Billiard with Silver (Three Clubs)
Product Number: 002-007-0584
Paolo is hardly a stranger to creating larger pipes when the spirit moves him, and while including a compositionally tall bowl within a classic, long shank shape is pretty much part-and-parcel of his shaping aesthetic, one that features this amount impressive girth is another thing altogether.
In some respects, this is something of a throwback to pipes that Paolo made in the 1990s (specifically thinking of a couple of Becker & Musico compositions). The shank is a little thicker than he commonly makes now and the sterling army mount is something he used to do very frequently and something he only employs occasionally now. The point at the bottom front of the bowl belies that influence, though, emphasizing his more recent stylistic developments. The sandblast densely and beautifully textured, with well defined ring grain circumnavigating the bowl.
