Sam Adebayo: Sandblasted Bent Brandy with Boxwood Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-750-0012
While many of Sam Adebayo's pieces seem to combine elements of the modern with more traditional shaping or finishes, here we have a bent Brandy that is traditional on all sides. With a lifting heel, low-set waist, and gentle taper, it's undeniably Danish in its inspiration, set to a thick but abbreviated shank that allows for a gentle curve to its stem. It's been finished in a dark sandblast, which has revealed neatly-stacked, rippling ring grain around its bowl, and provides a good bit of texture in hand. Where Sam often uses bright, vintage Bakelite in myriad colors for his mouthpieces, here he has kept his palette more minimal with a jet-black vulcanite stem, along with a trim band of boxwood to impart contrast to the piece. It's neat work, and a return to the classics for the American carver, not to mention one that also shows off his shaping ability with great success.
