Geiger: Smooth Horn with Horn
Product Number: 002-564-0054
While the Horn is a classic pipe design, it's one we've never before seen from Sara and Love of Geiger Pipes up until now. That said, this isn't a traditional rendition of the form, Sara and Love having taken creative liberties to create a uniquely individual pipe. Such an aesthetic fits in well to the Swedish duo's style, which often combines classic cues with organic flourishes and asymmetry.
At its root, the general profile of the Horn shape is maintained here — the bowl gradually flaring and urging forward from out of the gentle transition. Sara and Love have, then, paneled the flanks of the entire piece, shaped to align both with the grain and the bowl's contours. The rigid structure of the panels increases the in hand comfort and also contrasts against the profile's more fluid, flowing style.
Most distinct about this piece, however, is the shank extension and shaping of the stem. The horn mount is an apt accent for a shape such as this, and it displays a good deal of muscularity compared to other renditions of the Horn — boasting a hearty, substantial disposition that's juxtaposed against the elegant curvature of the silhouette. It flares subtly toward the stem, lending the transition a more svelte sense of grace and aligning well with the bowl's obvious flare. As for the stem, most other iterations would feature a softly downturned mouthpiece to balance the bowl's cant or a straight one to continue the lines of the shank. This Geiger piece showcases neither of those cues. Instead, the straight stem is paired to the upward curving shape, giving the mouthpiece a striking, upward-flicking orientation that continues the stummel's arcing grace. Matched by a stunning grain arrangement, highlighted in an equally stunning finish, this is a piece for collectors who appreciate classic shapes but want one imbued with creative elements that set it apart.-Truett Smith
