Chris Asteriou: Smooth Zulu with Corian (1346) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 002-540-0217

Leveraging his background as an architect and an industrial designer, Chris Asteriou fashions impeccable pipes that are as well engineered as they are aesthetically pleasing. This particular Zulu showcases Asteriou's fluency in traditional pipe design, offering a silhouette that wouldn't be out of place on any Anglo-French pipe chart. Shape-wise, this piece boasts a tall, Dublin-like bowl that stands at the fore of a trim, tapered shank-and-stem arrangement. Said bowl flares from its firm, conservative heel to its broad, flat rim, and as it does, it takes on a subtle forward cant that keeps the entire composition looking active and dynamic in profile. The oval shank and trim mouthpiece provide balance to the composition and keep things looking sleek and streamlined in profile, all while accentuating the aforementioned bowl's dramatic momentum. A vibrant, contrast-rich smooth finish dresses the stummel and highlights stellar birdseye across the bowl's flanks, while an accent of Corian adorns one side of the heel and adds a touch of unique flair to the shape's overall profile.
