Peasant with a pipe
Topic: Pipe 4: OCT06 -SOLD-

It turns out that the intersection of the airhole and the tobacco chamber was not a problem at all. I merely had to deepen the tobacco hole so that it ended at the bottom of the airhole. Its perfect, and I'll post a pic of it when the pipe is more presentable.

The pipe will not be dissimialr to the one in Van Gogh's painting "Peasant with a pipe in 1884." Pipe 4, as I think I mentioned is rustic in appearance due to its shape and its texture. The texture is a result of the carving process not an attempt to hide a flaw in the biar

That is to say, it was not "rusticated" intentionlly. The texture adds a great feel and look to the wood so I decided to leave it. It is in fact a straight grain piece of plateau, T shape per the Pimo Guide to Pipe Crafting. I purchased the briar from Pimo several years ago. I have great hopes for this peasant pipe which i am presently carving.

Thats it for now. Be sure to check out the Ser Jacopo website at Giancarlo Guidi has reached the top most echelon of his craft and truely serves as an inspiration to me. Off to the workshop:
