Tom Eltang: Rusticated Natural Mini Arne Jacobsen with Horn Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-299-1221
This trim, featherweight Dublin by Tom Eltang is modeled after the pipes that Arne Jacobsen — an architect and designer known for his adherence to Functionalism and his innovative furniture designs — used to smoke. The tall, upright bowl poses less of a cant and more of a subtle lean forward, lending it a bit of dynamism when paired to the arrow-straight shank-and-stem combination. The iconic taper from the rim to the heel that makes the Dublin shape so graceful remains intact, but the taper is gradual, with only a whisper of flaring occurring at the rim. Matching the svelte design of the bowl, the shank extends from the neat, low-slung transition, with a thin band of horn accenting the shank end. The slender shank is outpaced by a long stretch of tapered vulcanite, completing the willowy, elegant profile. The piece wears a lively, tan rustication that leaves plenty of stimulating, craggy texture to delight the fingers, with particular carvings at the fore and aft imitating pronounced growth rings that exaggerate the statuesque height of the bowl. Free of stain, this virgin-finished piece will darken as smoked, taking on unique, distinctive characteristics. The precision with which Eltang has crafted this piece can be felt in hand — its weight evenly distributed in such a way that allows it to rest comfortably without feeling fragile. It's a refined, sleek piece of craftsmanship that truly showcases Eltang's immense talent and will sure to be a treasured addition to any smoker's collection.--Davin Hylton
