Winslow: 50th Anniversary Smooth with Silver (054) (9mm)
Product Number: 002-036-1834
2019 marks Poul Winslow's 50th anniversary involved in pipemaking and it's hard to pick a better shape than a Danish-style Horn to celebrate such a momentous occasion. His career began when he was hired by Danish carver Preben Holm, quickly becoming Preben's head assistant out of 45 other pipemakers. After the factory closed in 1985, Poul ventured out on his own and has been crafting his takes on Danish classics and Freehands ever since.
While this example is an elegant, sweeping Horn rendition, it still boasts the substantial sense of proportion and muscularity which characterize many of Poul's shape designs. Along with its Danish classical shaping, this offering also showcases Winslow's excellent eye when it comes to shaping and highlighting the grain orientation of each block. Here Poul has dressed it in one of his signature contrast stains, accentuating the lively licks of flame grain around the bowl beautifully. It's then topped off by a bright band of sterling silver and a creamy white acrylic accent along the shank end. This particular piece has also been drilled to accommodate the use of 9mm filters. A gorgeous piece that's an excellent way to celebrate such a remarkable and respected career.- Jeffery Sitts
