Glenn Tinsky: Light Smooth Billiard (2 Star) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-915-0005
The son of prolific American artisan Mark Tinsky, Glenn Tinsky continues his family's pipe-making tradition and establishes a new legacy name in the craft. Though his father's work had an influence on Glenn at a young age, with Glenn having even crafted some pipes in his teenage years, it wasn't until much later in life that the younger Tinsky decided to transition to pipe making full-time. He spent 17 years in the restaurant industry before deciding he needed a change, and once restaurants closed due to Covid-19 protocols, Glenn found the perfect opportunity to fully devote himself to pipe making. As a pipe maker, Glenn takes inspiration from his father while incorporating aspects from the Danish school, resulting in designs that are both unique and elegant in their construction. This Billiard is a fetching example of Glenn's style, presenting a tall, muscular bowl that's set to a comparatively slender shank-and-stem arrangement. The bowl's thick insulating walls offer plenty of substance for fingers to grasp and conceal a broad chamber. A warm smooth finish dresses the stummel and highlights a handsome showing of grain around the bowl, while a metallic accent adorns the junction and adds a touch of flash to the overall form.--Davin Hylton
