Randy Wiley: Feather Carved Opera (77) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-093-2904
An esteemed American carver and a dedicated craftsman, Randy Wiley has been fashioning pipes since the 1970s. Wiley's pipes reflect his background in wood carving, as each design is distinctive and possessed of a unique character completely its own. Wiley produces roughly 1000 pipes annually, the majority of which are smooth, completely rusticated, or some mixture of the two — but never sandblasted. This Opera is a fetching showcase of Wiley's style, and it's presented in a warm, traditional smooth finish that highlights some striking grain throughout the stummel. For some textural diversity, Wiley has carved a feather along the bowl's rim.--Davin Hylton
