P. Jeppesen Handmade High Grade Sandblasted Freehand
Crafted completely by hand as part of Peder Jeppesen's High Grade series, this massive Freehand showcases the Danish carver's penchant for whimsical, organically inclined shapes.
The raised, forward-surging bowl possesses a lifted heel that comes to a sharp, pronounced point at the fore. The broad, steep transition lends further visual prominence to the bowl while the flared shank rapidly curves to the right, creating a sense of visual dynamism at both ends of the stummel.
Typically, plateau is employed at the rim or heel of a pipe, but Jeppesen has shaped this design in such a way that the plateau runs across the entire left side, following the curvature of stummel until it terminates at the end of the shank face. The abbreviated, relative to the pipe's overall proportions, saddle stem of multicolored acrylic tops off the design, subtly contrasting with the richly textured sandblasted finish and contrast stain that dresses the stummel.
