David Huber: Sandblasted Cubist Bent Dublin (7323) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 002-755-0108

David Huber is an American carver that takes inspiration from the Danish and Japanese pipe-making tradition, and as such, his work tends be quite organic, prioritizing sculpted lines and precise shaping. Huber began making pipes full-time in 2014 and received guidance in his early days from carvers like Jeff Gracik, Nanna Ivarsson, and Alex Florov.

Taking inspiration from Cubism, this bent Dublin leverages paneled facets, geometric angles, and sharp lines to reproduce the fragmented visual aesthetic associated with the avant-garde art movement. In essence, this bent Dublin is a deconstructed rendition of the classic form, offering the spirit of the shape but in a new and distinctive way. As such, this piece retains the shape's distinctive flare, with a gradual, albeit stuttering, expansion possessing the bowl as it rises from its firm, protruding heel to its broad rim. Like the bowl, the shank is playfully asymmetrical and quite rigid, its firm, pronounced lines continuing the shape's architectural motif. A dark sandblast dresses the stummel and coaxes out attractive growth rings across the bowl's flanks, the finish's rugged texture offset by smoothly polished sections of briar at the rim and shank face.
