Scottie Piersel: Relief Contrast Pencil Shank Billiard Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-786-0108
While Scottie Piersel is perhaps best known for her extraordinarily long pencil-shanked renditions, she is an expert at crafting more traditional styles as well, and when she combines her pencil shanks with classic forms, the result is spectacular. This Billiard does just that, with a firm bowl sandblasted in her Relief Contrast finish, its higher peaks smoothed to reveal the under-stain while the lower aspects are imbued with the darker stain applied afterward. The piece maintains its traditional character despite the incredibly thin shank, partly because it's under five inches in length for less proportional contrast than in her longer compositions, and is complemented by one of her specially chosen, modern-toned vulcanite mouthpiece with a creamy accent band contrasting both the hues of the stummel and the stem.- Chuck Stanion
