Mark Tinsky: Cabernet Bent Pot with Ebonite and Elforyn Christmas 2021 (Three Star)
Product Number: 002-035-0941
Mark Tinsky has delighted discerning smokers with stylish, handmade pipes since 1978, and for the past 38 years, his annual line of Christmas pipes has been perennially anticipated by collectors worldwide. Showcasing a singular shape unique to each year, this limited-production holiday release personifies Mark's artful shaping, handsome finishes, and use of exciting accent materials. For Christmas 2021, the American artisan carved a selection of bent Pot shapes, all marked by a stout bowl balanced by a subtly sinuous shank and stem — the shank slightly elongated to further evoke the serpentine nature. This particular example wears Mark's smooth Cabernet finish, dressing the briar in a rich, mahogany stain that highlights concise vertical grain. Fitted to a jet-black, acrylic stem, it's elevated by dual accents along the rim and shank end: An intriguing brindled vulcanite ring of black, grey, and umber tones encircles the rim, while pale Elforyn — an environmentally friendly material often used in place of ivory — adorns the upper bowl and shank end to offer striking contrast and elegant appeal.-Truett Smith
