Li Zhesong: Sandblasted Billiard with Bamboo Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-703-0024
With a distinctly Danish pedigree, this briar sports a full-bodied Billiard bowl imbued with a low-sitting waistline, along with a slim transition and three knuckles of pale bamboo. Though not as complex as some of Li Zhesong's more unique fare, the deft handling of a classic such as this is certainly indicative of the Chinese carver's fine vision and serious skill with shaping. The bowl is finished in a crisp, Danish-style sandblast, accentuating a fine display of tight rings, complemented by a warm, contrast stained rim packed with birdseye.
