Silver Gray: Smooth Oom Paul with Ziricote Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 002-775-0082

Leveraging a background as a seamstress and potter, Silver Gray brings a keen eye for detail to her pipe making, rendering shapes that are full of small nuances and subtle flourishes. A former accountant by trade, Gray honed her pipe-making sills over a number of years, starting with scraps of briar and eventually developing an aesthetic that's singularly her own. She always crafts well-engineered pipes for smooth smokes and has a particular affinity for nontraditional materials and unique accents, as exemplified by this Oom Paul.

Fashioned from 40-year-old Sardinian briar that Gray acquired from Paul Perry, this striking Oom Paul boasts the tight-knit silhouette one expects from the form, but with the added embellishment of a more curvaceous, bulging bowl, one that lends a subtle forward-surging momentum to the composition. A pronounced transition pairs said bowl to a high-reaching shank-and-stem arrangement that lends the pipe's aft a pronounced verticality and a comfortable smoking posture. A warm smooth finish dresses the stummel and highlights handsome birdseye across the bowl's flanks, while an accent of ziricote adorns the stem base, its reserved, shadowy hues matching the mossy complexion of the vulcanite it decorates.
