Glenn Tinsky: Light Smooth Bent Billiard Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-915-0009
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 bent Billiard is a striking example of Glenn's style, presenting a forward-canted bowl that's set to a subtly bent shank-and-stem arrangement. The towering, deep-chambered bowl overshadows the comparatively lithe shank and stem, resulting in a profile that brings to mind Italian neoclassical briars. It's handsomely dressed in a smoky smooth finish that highlights fetching grain around the flanks of the bowl.--Davin Hylton
