Growley Pipes

Hurricane Billiard: (Unavailable)

August 28, 2012Growleyarchived 2012

You could call this grain a “Hurricane” of birds eye and flame grain all swirled up in a Billiard. However, the name better indicates the environment in which I carved it. I’m currently waiting for Hurricane Isaac to hit and figured there’s no better way to take my mind off a storm than to make a pipe.

This Billiard was hand crafted from the finest Italian briar. This particular block provided a plethora of fine birds eye and  flame grain, seemingly all swirled asymmetrically together.

The stem was hand cut from German amber flake acrylic, and was fashioned with a comfort bit and a wide open draw.
