Dasha Florov: Smooth Acorn with Ivorite
Product Number: 002-797-0023
This Acorn is only the second such piece we've received from Dasha Florov. Like many of the American artisan's pipes, this rendition is rife with Danish influence, specifically that of Nanna Ivarsson. Here, the broad, rounded rim of the bulbous bowl flares dramatically, with its softly chamfered inner rim resembling that of a mushroom. Indeed, the carver from Chicago has cited nature as one of her inspirations.
An especially fluid, sinuous piece with its soft, elongated transition and gestural curling of the shank, it's further accentuated by a trim ring of Ivorite at the shank end. Topped by a jet-black, domed saddle stem that contrasts against the pale accent, the stummel is dressed in a rich, mahogany stain, highlighting some beautiful flame grain around the bowl with a wealth of birdseye along the rim. This is a beautiful, stunning pipe from a talented artisan.-Angela Robertson
