Mark Tinsky: Tan Sandblasted Bent Egg (5) (Two Star)
Product Number: 002-035-0633
I'm an unabashed lover of sandblasted pipes and Mark Tinsky's Tanblast is my favorite finish from the American carver. It's consistently impressive, and this bent Egg offering is a prime example with tight, undulating waves of ring grain climbing the flanks of the chubby, canted bowl. Smooth briar along the rim and shank end offers some slight textural contrast but seamlessly blend in with the stummel's hue. What's more, the stummel's light, tan tones will take on more character with time, gradually developing a patina with each bowl that's enjoyed inside.- Jeffery Sitts
