Mark Tinsky: Sandblasted Bent Dublin Christmas 2019 (Two Star)
Product Number: 002-035-0611
Mark Tinsky spends about half his time making pipes, half fishing, and half doing everything else. Everything else sometimes doesn't receive the attention it should, but we have to admire the pipemaker's priorities. Whatever else happens in his life, there are always plenty of pipes and fish. This pipe, as you can see, is a sandblasted, 2-Star, Christmas 2019 edition. Mark has been producing Christmas pipes in a single shape and different finishes since 1983, so it's a tradition with more than three decades of momentum. The dramatic flare of the rim gives the piece a Cauldron-like disposition, and provides an easy in-hand hold. The rim is rounded, the transition is gentle and gradual, and the balance sublime. This rendition is sandblasted with ripples of horizontal growth rings dominating the bowl and a reassuring, mahogany stain for natural chromatic qualities.- Chuck Stanion
