I figured it was appropriate to wind up the year with another Author...one of my favorite combinations- B&W Cumberland with an Ooosic accent ring. This one is one of the few I've done with a 1" tobacco chamber- 4.75" long, 1.31" deep and 65 grams...

Love the stem grain orientation and button work!
That's one of my favorite combination of Cumberland- SEM Germany cals it a B&W Cumberland...I've also pretty much settled on that button design- like to keep it nice and open on the slot- surprisingly doesn't take long for the extra shaping.

Solidity all around with superb shaping and finish. Author is a great shape.

That pipe is a beast! Between the blast and the shape its a very deadly looking pipe. Well done Zack!

Very well executed.
The blast looks awesome, the tease of grain that comes through on the smooth rim is a vey elegant detail, the button on the bottom of the bowl goes a long way in distinguishing this pipe, the speckling on the ring joins the beautiful acrylic stem to the shank.
A true work of art and an excellent example of a very fine pipe indeed.

That wide bowl looks primed for a nice all-morning smoke with cup of coffee and a sunrise.
