Jared Coles: Sandblasted Prince
Product Number: 002-738-0063
While we've received traditionally shaped pipes before from Jared Coles, the American artisan most often produces pipes marked by organic and Freehand shaping cues, and of the classic shapes we've seen from him, this piece represents the first Prince rendition. It's a slender and svelte rendition, of Group 1 size, and calls to mind the petite designs fashioned by vintage French marques. I especially appreciate Jared's treatment of the stem: Firstly, the cumberland hue offers just the right amount of accenting color, while still remaining traditional and reserved, and secondly, though it does display an almost imperceptible degree of bend, its overall straightness serves to accentuate the sleek lines of the profile. The stretched shank-and-stem combination lend the bowl a perched disposition on the end, tastefully plump and rounded per standards of the classic archetype. For fans of Jared's work who are drawn to more traditional designs, this Prince is a rarer piece from Coles and not one to pass on.-Truett Smith
