Mark Tinsky: Tan Sandblasted Bent Dublin Christmas 2019 (One Star)
Product Number: 002-035-0607
Many pipemakers and companies will design a new finish each year for their Christmas lines, adorning an assortment of shapes with a festive color palette and/or accent. Mark Tinsky, instead, fashions one, singular shape and dresses it in a variety of finishes. For 2019's release, the American carver has opted for a trumpeting bent Dublin as the defining shape, with this particular offering displaying a slightly pinched waistline and tightly-knit transition. There's a good bit of chamber tucked away inside and the light tan tones of the stummel will gradually darken over with time and use, developing a patina with each bowl that's enjoyed. A firm ridgeline has been utilized to separate the smooth rim from the sandblasted finish below, which has unveiled a mesmerizing array of ring grain that creeps up the bowl.- Jeffery Sitts
