Jody Davis: Sandblasted Bent Apple with Silver (Friar) (C22) (30) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 002-718-0049

Jody Davis, in addition to being an accomplished musician, is also a venerated pipe maker who fashions some of the finest briars in America. Like many American artisans, Jody Davis tends to fashion relatively compact designs that emphasize muscular proportions over length, as is the case with this bent Apple. Shape-wise, this piece features a broad, heavy-set bowl that rises proudly at the fore of a equally curvaceous shank-and-stem arrangement. The bowl boasts a subtle taper across its insulating walls, reducing from a wide, plump heel to a tauter rim. The shank-and-stem arrangement strikes a refined S-curve that encourages a comfortable smoking posture and adds a subtle bit of gesture to the overall form in profile. The bowl's supple curves conform naturally to the hand, while the spacious transition leaves more than enough room to drape a digit. An earthy sandblast dresses and coaxes out rippling growth rings across the bowl's flanks, its rustic hues complemented by the cumberland saddle stem. A band of sterling silver adorns the mortise and ties the entire composition together with a subtle dose of flash.
