Pete Prevost: Sandblasted Bent Dublin Sitter Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 002-532-0079

Pete Prevost's foray into smoking pipes began at 18-years-old with a corn cob pipe and a pouch of drugstore tobacco. Prevost spent much of his life as a touring musician, and during this time he began to experiment with crafting pipes from kits. Soon after, he met another pipe maker with a musical background, Jody Davis, who later introduced him to another famous American carver, Todd Johnson. Prevost and Johnson would go on to found the pipe-making workshop BriarWorks in 2013, where Prevost currently serves as president. However, Prevost still finds the time to craft quite a few handmade pipes every year in his signature style, which is typified by compact, muscular shapes that showcase shapely contours and pristine line work.

This bent Dublin Sitter by Pete Prevost is an exceptionally organic interpretation of the shape. The piece is positioned atop a flattened heel that is rather trim but still provides for stable sitting, an excellent example of Prevost's immaculate engineering skills. From said heel, the stummel flares outward, forming an arcing fore that gives the bowl its palpable, forward-urging stance. Furthermore, the walls peak at an asymmetrical rim adorned with a rugged ring of plateau, further accentuating this piece's natural features, which encircles a dramatically chamfered inner-rim that is dressed in a ruby-tinged smooth finish. Paralleling the bowl's posture, the shank rises upward with a supple bend as it flares to the shank face, which is dressed in a light chestnut stain. Although this bent Dublin Sitter is dressed in a variety of finishes, the most comprehensive is the rustic sandblast on the stummel, which highlights undulating growth rings and wisps of flame grain in walnut and auburn hues that ooze organic appeal. Additionally, the stummel's smoky colors provide a congruent complement to the cumberland stem, which curves upward to a broad bit that facilitates effortless jaw-hanging.
