Chris Asteriou: Sandblasted Prince with Silver (1162) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-540-0187
Anyone familiar with Chris Asteriou's portfolio ought to immediately recognize this piece as the Greek artisan's handiwork. From form to finish, this Prince fits squarely into Asteriou's penchant for English classics, most often dressed in a dark sandblast to contrast gorgeous accents of sterling silver. Ever-so-slightly bent of stem, the profile eases forward in slender proportions toward the plump, Apple-like bowl on the end. Softly rounded and ever-so-bulging of waistline, the insulating walls fit effortlessly in hand, affording a stimulating texture thanks to one of Chris's deftly executed sandblasts. Anyone interested in Asteriou's work should consider this piece — it covers much of his signature style from the dress pipe finish and the stunning silver military mount to the traditional profile and crisply chamfered, innermost portion of the rim, stained a deep midnight black, with ruby undertones.-Truett Smith
