Jared Coles: Sandblasted Billiard with Bamboo Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-738-0061
Combining elegant formality with the organic nature of bamboo, this Billiard from Jared Coles exudes both rugged charm and handsome class. Three knuckles of tan bamboo extend the shank for a Lovat-like profile, fitted to an abbreviated saddle stem. From the slender transition, then, rises a slightly tapered bowl dressed in a subtle sandblast, dark-stained to highlight the bamboo's hue and the trim, white accent adorning the end. The black-and-white motif calls to mind the formal dress-pipe aesthetic, but Coles has added to it the striking presence of bamboo for a blended aesthetic — the bamboo echoing the bowl's palette with black accenting nodes dotting the extension. Overall, it's a traditional rendition, on the lengthier size but still only 36 grams in weight. It's one of Jared's more classically shaped pieces, compared to his more oft-seen Freehands and organic designs, and it's made all the more special thanks to his use of a formal color palette and rustic bamboo.-Truett Smith
