Dirk Heinemann: Sandblasted Tomato with Ox Bone Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-793-0065
Full of supple curves and elegant, understated lines, this Tomato from Dirk Heinemann is a truly stunning piece. It's rendered in Nosewarmer dimensions, measuring less than five inches in total length, making it ideal for pocket-carry and on-the-go smoking. The lifted heel and bulging waistline lend the broad, low-lying bowl a forward-surging posture and a dynamic stance in profile. The shank curls out of the transition and takes a rearward trajectory that counterbalances the bowl's implied momentum, creating a visual polarity at either end of the pipe's construction that's demarcated by the tight-knit, cheeked transition. It's finished in a jet-black sandblast that brings vivid definition to the natural grain orientation of the briar and harmonizes well in color with the slender saddle stem. A pearly white accent of ox bone adorns the shank face and provides a touch of tactile and visual contrast to the overall design.--Davin Hylton
