Il Duca: Sandblasted Pot (B) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 002-427-0598

Max Rimensi, the talented artisan behind Il Duca pipes, is remarkably resourceful when it comes to transitioning between the different schools of design. He often takes a classic shape and renders it more modern, reassessing it in a more contemporaneous manner, whether through stem material, design, or accent.

Offering a juxtaposition of aesthetics, the Italian carver has combined a stout, broadly rounded and muscular Pot bowl with a streamlined, pencil-thin shank and tapering stem. The starkly contrasting proportions between bowl and shank hint at Italian neoclassic design and display a lightweight, graceful elegance in profile. This pipe is further enlivened by one of Max's modern, signature contrast-stained sandblasts, the lighter, ochre tones integrated with dark brown hues, highlighting handsome growth ring patterns. Another example of outstanding craftsmanship and flourishing finish by Il Duca.
