Geiger: Smooth Yin Yang Eskimo Two Pipe Set with Tobacco Plate
Product Number: 002-564-0037
While two pipe sets aren't anything new in the world of pipes, Geiger has made something quite special in these two Eskimo designs. Inspired by the dualistic forces of Yin and Yang, not only does each piece sport contrasting stems of white and black, but the shanks are both curved in a complementary manner so that the two pieces mesh together when placed side by side, just like the symbol for Yin and Yang.
The set is, then, presented with a tobacco plate fashioned from briar and inlaid with the taichi symbol at its center. Doubling as a display, the plate is perfect for setting the pipes together directly above the center piece for a symbolic parallel. In another dose of symbolism, the set also parallels the couple behind Geiger pipes: Love Geiger and Sara Mossberg. It's simply stunning work, testifying to the Geigerss skill at the craft of pipemaking and deep consideration of thematic contrast and balance. -Truett Smith
