Becker: Sandblasted Pot (Three Clubs)
Product Number: 002-007-0772
Many of Federico Becker's pipes feature trim and slender shaping cues, but this Pot opts for a more muscular, stockier aesthetic — compactly rendered at under five inches in length, making for a convenient nosewarmer and pocket pipe. Despite being a touch more robust of relative proportions compared to Becker's other pieces, this Pot remains clearly recognizable as the work of the Italian artisan. Such obvious origin is evidenced by the pointed heel of this piece — a signature of Federico's work — as the underside of the shank continues through the bowl's heel. Though a simple shaping cue, it results in a striking motif that enhances the silhouette with crisp sleekness uncommon in heartier designs. Matching the dynamism added by the pointed heel, the rim, then, cants forward ever-so-slightly. This piece is dressed in a dark-stained sandblast, drawing focus to the smooth, smoky stain of the rim and twin, pale accent rings around the stem base.-Truett Smith
