Todd Johnson: Smooth Acorn with Bakelite (Phalanx)

Product Number: 002-194-0110

It's pipes like this that readily evoke the familiar Ivarssonian adage that truly great briars practically beg to be cuddled, like a hamster. Indeed, in that vein this piece from Todd Johnson is one hell of a hamster-like smoker. A soft-lined example of pared down, Danish-inspired shaping, this Acorn presents a graceful gesture in profile, coupled with a strong sense of muscularity and forthrightness. The very warm, almost matte contrast accentuates as stunning a display of flame grain as you're likely to find, giving way to a freckling of plateau at the broad rim. Adorned with a creamy off-white bakelite stem, bolstered by a turquoise-colored accent of the same material, it's an affable number, and a stellar piece even within the context of Todd's impressive body of work.
