Scottie Piersel: Partially Sandblasted Pencil Shank Dublin with Ivorite Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 002-786-0122

With a background in industrial engineering, sculpting, and architecture, not to mention a long-standing tradition of smoking pipes, Scottie Piersel seemed especially equipped to handle the craft of pipe making, but it wasn't until she bought a pipe making kit with the intention of crafting her husband a present did her interest take full form. She began to study and learn from a variety of great North American carvers, refining her skills and developing an aesthetic that prioritized utility, engineering, and comfort, with the finishing and shaping acting as an extension of the pipe's functionality. Her work shows a clear penchant for sleek, streamlined designs, like this straight Dublin piece.

Like with many of Piersel's designs, a broad, muscular bowl is paired to a lengthy, pencil-thin shank-and-stem arrangement, and like all of her pencil shanks, it's lined with stainless steel tubing for added durability. Possessing the length one would expect from a Churchwarden, over seven inches from end to end, but in an arrow-straight orientation, this piece keeps its line work subdued and refined, lending the bowl most of the composition's visual weight. The bowl's thick walls and hearty proportions offer plenty of briar to grip and a rather generous chamber capacity. The stummel wears a dark, smoky sandblast that accentuates the natural grain orientation of the briar and coaxes out subtle growth rings that ripple from the firm, rounded heel to the flared rim, which is left smooth for a touch of contrast. The tapered stem of mocha-hued vulcanite offers a dose of color to keep the overall design lively and vibrant.
