Wojtek Pastuch: Smooth Pot with Horn (1022)
Product Number: 002-811-0065
Wojtek Pastuch is an incredibly gifted carver, possessing the ability and imagination to craft some of the most creative and evocative Freehand designs we've ever seen. But it's the Polish artisan's classic shapes that appeal to me the most and this trim, svelte Pot is a particularly enticing composition. The briar's excellent flame grain is wonderfully illuminated by the light stain Pastuch applied to the stummel, with the streaks of vertical grain continuing along the sides of the lengthy shank. I also admire how Wojtek accented the rim with a small kiss of natural plateau for added visual texture before the inner rim slopes softly inward toward the tobacco chamber. A horn ferrule extends the shank, its light, creamy hues pairing beautifully with the stummel's coloration. The horn accent exhibits a subtle flare at its end, a stylistic touch that imbues an already remarkable composition with even more character. It's a stellar example of Wojtek's creativity approach to traditional shapes and his ability to craft pipes that are distinctive, aesthetically pleasing, and wonderfully engineered.- Jeffery Sitts
