Randy Wiley: Galleon Long Shank Bent Pot (55)
Product Number: 002-093-2477
Randy Wiley's style ranges from more wildly shaped Freehand-like designs to those of a more classic disposition, like the Pot featured here. Despite this wide spectrum, though, Wiley's pipes are consistent in their larger size, catering to the Italian neoclassic tradition of bowl-centric proportions, which great influence Randy's era of American pipemaking. In this particular piece, that results in a firm-heeled, upright bowl and comparatively slender, lenticular shank out back. The transition is angled ever-so-slightly to accommodate the subtle downturn of the stem, protruding the heel and further emphasizing the bowl's substance in hand — dressed here in the American carver's Galleon rustication, the low-profile texture fashioned using a rotary tool.-Truett Smith
