Mark Tinsky: Natural Bent Pot with Palm and Ebony Christmas 2021 (One Star) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-035-0927
American carver Mark Tinsky has been producing commemorative Christmas pipes since 1983, making this yearly release nothing short of a tradition. For 2021, Tinsky has chosen this bent Pot to comprise his Christmas release, pairing a squat, stout bowl with a willowy stretch of shank and stem, the latter of which is demurely downturned. This rather robust shape also features a swiftly lifted heel, pushing the bowl up higher and into further visual prominence. The transition is quite sharp, nearly a right angle, and the shank that ebbs forth from it is straight, with the bend coming into play only at the stem. This particular example features a palmwood accent encircling the rim, with an ebony ring resting right where the chamber is set, adding a pop of color and contrast to the more honeyed stain that dresses the rest of the stummel.-John McElheny
