Mark Tinsky: Root Bent Dublin with Bocote (5) (Three Star)
Product Number: 002-035-0677
Mark Tinsky started making pipes during an era when Italian pipe making greatly influenced American carvers and this bent Dublin really hints at the style. The bowl is impressively muscular and robust, with tight tendrils of flame grain rising in concert with the bowl's flare before meeting the broad rim that's dominated by whorls of birdseye. The firm ridgelines of the diamond shank adds some sturdiness to the piece's in-hand feel with the lines continuing with precision into the gently downturned mouthpiece. A band of bocote accents the stem base and is a type of exotic hardwood frequently used in crafting musical instruments, gun stocks, and fine furniture. It displays some captivating grain of its own and reflects Tinsky's creative use of exotic hardwoods.- Jeffery Sitts
