Becker: Sandblasted Pot (Two Clubs) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 002-007-0887

Federico Becker is a third-generation pipe maker whose late father and grandfather began the Becker workshop in the 1970s. The younger Becker has certainly come into his own in the carving world, marrying his elders' design styles with his own learned skills and creative vision. This fetching Pot is a fine example of Federico's astuteness as an artisan, offering the elegant lines and rich finishing work for which the workshop is known.

A fairly traditional take on the classic form, this piece sees a squat, muscular bowl posed at the fore of a sleek, arrow-straight shank-and-stem arrangement. The bowl boasts a striking forward-cant that imbues the totality of the shape with an active appearance, one that immediately captures the eye. Additionally, the bowl stands atop a firm, angular heel, one that resembles the prow of a ship when viewed from the fore, a signature design cue of Becker's. A earthy sandblast dresses the stummel and unveils rippling growth rings across the bowl's flanks, the finish's smoky complexion mirrored by the cumberland stem.
