Growley Pipes

Sea Bean: (SOLD)

December 8, 2012Growleyarchived 2013

The Sea Bean takes a nod from a “Walnut”, designed by Rainer Barbi. I fell in love with the shape immediately and had to make a Growley version of it. Living by the Gulf, this shape reminds me of those odd little sea beans that show show up on the beach glossy, smooth and round.

This pipe was made from the finest Italian briar, and the wonderful grain proves it’s worth using only the best wood. The straight grain on this pipe goes all the way around the bowl and is some of the nicest I’ve seen yet. It’s complimented by a nice portion of tight birds eye on the bottom.

The stem was hand crafted from German black ebonite, and was fashioned with a comfort bit. As with all my pipes, I’ve opened this pipe up properly to give it the the right air flow to provide a cool dry smoke.

If you’d like to purchase a similar pipe, or have interest in having me build a custom pipe to fit your exact tastes, feel free to email or call me, and I’ll be happy to work out the arrangements with you.

Thanks for looking,

Brian G. Rowley
