Details

This modern interpretation of the ballerina or fig shape from Nate King employs a 5 knuckle shaft of bamboo in the shank.  A spectacular specimen of material, the bamboo itself is mottled and features some marvelously thick striations of darker stripes that give it an old world style that is rare among the cleaner pieces so often used today.  With a tall chamber and touch of plateau at the rim, the sandblasted bulb of stummel displays an amazing and undulating pattern of distinction and detail revealing enumerate rings of growth in cross section with plenty of straight grain.  Even the asymmetry of the rim works the whole piece into an evolution of organic  shape and detail.  Then there is the stem, as if to proclaim in a clear voice of modern praise that this pipe belongs not to the days gone by, but to the now.  Teal, trumpeted, and crowned, with the precision we have come to expect in all of Nate's work.  But there is so much more to this pipe than its awe inspiring aesthetic.  Not just light but almost gravity defying, light, stable enough to stand, and a draft that is smoother than anything on its surface, this world class embodiment of craft and statement will be a smoking masterpiece.
