Growley Pipes

Sun Dried Tomato: (SOLD)

August 22, 2014Growleyarchived 2014

In southern Alabama, there grows a tomato vine that never did seem quite normal. We saved seeds, year after faithful year, and it certainly did sprout tomatoes, full and ripe and half-drunk under the deep eye of the July sun. Every summer, though, the cultivar would bring odd surprises. Three years ago, a perfectly weighted baseball drooped from a stem. Last year it was a clear glass bauble full of algae and tiny fish. This year’s crop came with one of the finest pipes we’ve ever seen. Smoke it with your shoes off, of course.

This pipe was had carved from the finest Italian briar. The grain is close and even all the way around the bowl. The stellar straight grain also produces some beautiful birdseye on both the top and bottom.

The stem was hand cut out of German 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.
