Mike Sebastian Bay: Smooth Bent Dublin with Horn Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-820-0062
Other bent Dublin renditions we've received from Mike Sebastian Bay have featured ridgelines along the lower flanks of the shank that extend through the heel to create a certain, structured motif. This version, however, forgoes such hard lines for a consistently smooth and soft-lined aesthetic. That said, the profile remains quite similar to those aforementioned examples: The bowl angles suddenly upward to accentuate the transition and pronounced heel, while the shank-and-stem combination offers a sinuous gesture that creates a dynamic profile when paired with the bowl's slight forward cant. Exceptionally lightweight and conveniently compact, this pipe from the Danish artisan is primed for on-the-go smokes and elevates that practicality with a stunning color palette. A rich, auburn contrast stain highlights flame grain across the bowl, with darker plateau kissing the rim for a hint of rustic texture, and a creamy horn accoutrement bears a domed aspect for accenting line work — emulating the look of a military mount but featuring a standard mortise-and-tenon arrangement and contributing to the piece's distinct Danish design aesthetic. It fits in well to Bay's penchant for compact, lightweight forms, perfect for those interested in a pocket-friendly pipe fashioned by the hands of a carver of proven prowess.-Truett Smith
