Mark Tinsky: Cabernet Bent Billiard (Glenn Tinsky) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-035-1009
Glenn Tinsky is the son of American carver Mark Tinsky, his journey into the pipe world precipitated by the work of his father and resulting in pieces such as this bent Billiard. Perhaps a touch more classically inclined than pieces made by his father, this pipe showcases a languid sinuosity throughout its build, with the shank tapering and curling upward gently to meet a jet-black stem that continues that taper, a ring of pale white near the junction drawing some attention toward it. Said stem arcs gracefully skyward before taking on a demure downturn at the bit, the combination still rather muscular and easily balancing the bowl and the visual weight it offers in comparison placing the focus here at the transitional area. This area is more than wide enough to drape a digit of your choice, and the subtle rounding of the bowl, and gradual taper to the rim that follows, provides a comfortable feel in hand, the surfaces of the briar dressed in the warm auburn hues of the Cabernet finish.-John McElheny
