Tom Eltang: Smooth Pac-Man with Horn Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 002-299-1344

A design similar to the Disc with strong, lens-like qualities, this Pac-Man from Tom Eltang is a sharp-lined, playful piece that exemplifies both the Danish carver's masterful shaping and fun-loving personality. Imagine a pinched Opera bowl, but instead of positioning the shank in line with the vertically pressed axis, it's oriented perpendicular, the bulbous, rounded sections of the bowl now fore and aft rather than at the flanks. Wrapping the bowl around the flanks from the rim through the heel is a well defined, incredibly crisp ridgeline. Behind trails an extension of horn that flares out to a ridge at its end, a domed face marrying the black vulcanite stem to the stummel, its expansion ring at the base doing well to mirror the horn's ridge in style. Full of Danish elegance, it's a piece that exemplifies Eltang's sleek-lined, minimalist style, even despite being a non-standard shape. As for the name — when viewing the bowl head on and tilted 90°, the perfectly circular outline and concave rim clearly display the open-mouthed arcade hero, ready to gobble up your favorite tobacco blend.
