Chris Asteriou: Smooth Long Shank Tomato (97/17)
Product Number: 002-540-0082
Chris Asteriou can make a classic pipe. Perhaps that's why he's so good at more unusual shapes, such as this &@8281; he's mastered the fundamentals, knows how lines and proportion work, and has expanded upon those tenets to produce marvelous freehands with the same exacting precision as traditional pieces. In this cross-grain piece, we see a somewhat bulbous bowl with crisp transition to an expanding shank, and terminating with a short saddle stem. The sharp ridge lines at the top and bottom right-side of the shank provide additional tactile and visual interest, and demarcate the grain on the right side. Comfortable and stunning.- Chuck Stanion
