Tom Eltang: Smooth Long Shank Bent Apple
Product Number: 002-299-1045
Simple and effortless precision defines this long-shanked Apple from Tom Eltang. The bowl's forward edge is lifted for an organic appeal, characterizing the careful curvature of the bowl as it rises in contrast stain to the gently inflated rim. The transition offers moderate cheeking, preserving the near curvature of the bowl, and joins the impressive shank. That shank is long and upward curving, with just a bit of expansion at its end, joining a dramatic saddle stem of short, jet-black vulcanite. The shank also expands horizontally for an oval aesthetic that's invisible in profile but apparent aerially. The composition is just over six inches in length, with a profile that lends it supple and slender elegance in a rare rendition of the classic Apple as seen through the creative lens of one of the most respected pipe makers in the world.- Chuck Stanion
