Pete Prevost: Sandblasted Bent Dublin Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-532-0054
With a portfolio that ranges from extra-chubby, curvaceous, and compact pieces to lithe and slender examples, Pete Prevost's personal design aesthetic casts a wide net. That former aesthetic is represented by this bent Dublin — measuring just four-and-a-half inches in length for a compact, nosewarmer style. The sense of line and plateau-crowned rim call to mind classic Danish cues, but the proportions are noticeably more substantial and stout. Such a combination of elegant curves and muscularity is a common convention within American pipe making, and Pete often leans toward this style. In this bent Dublin, the transition from the oval shank to the flaring bowl is seamless and gentle, matched by the consistent arc of the piece's undercurve. Thick-walled and marked by a rim of plateau, the bowl contributes much to the composition's stoutness — being quite squat and broad, with proportions like that of a Pot. Prevost has dressed it in an earthy contrast stain and ring grain-defining sandblast for a rustic presentation that's perfect for a pipe of such convenient, pocket-friendly dimensions.-Truett Smith
