Ser Jacopo: Picta Miro Spongia Sandblasted Billiard with Silver (03) (S3) (C) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-171-2735
Based on the 1920 painting Horse, pipe, and red flower from Spanish artist Joan Miró, this unique Billiard takes inspiration from the long, slender clay pipe depicted in the surrealist work. However, this Ser Jacopo rendition utilizes briar as its medium and does a fine job of adhering to the source material but takes some creative liberties in its execution. Here, the Italian workshop has added a single beadline underneath the rim, and the base is slightly elongated, its roundness noticeably causing it to droop past the shank. This particular example has then been finished in a crisp tanblast, unveiling a fascinating pattern of rippling grain around the bowl. A trim band of silver separates the jet-black stem from the stummel and wraps everything up rather nicely.- Jeffery Sitts
