Glenn Tinsky: Light Smooth Billiard with Horn (3 Star) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-915-0007
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. A striking interpretation of the Billiard shape, this particular design features a tall, Brandy-like bowl that tapers from its wide heel to its wavy, plateau-crowned rim. Said bowl stands at the fore of a sleek shank-and-stem arrangement, which provides balance to the composition and keeps things looking streamlined in profile. Dressed in a smoky smooth finish, and accented with a band of horn, this piece offers plenty of visual detail for the eyes to admire.--Davin Hylton
