The Lucky Pipe

I've made a couple pipes in honor of the upcoming St. Patrick's day. This tobacco pipe is the first that I am posting. The most striking feature is obviously the bowl shape. After having experimented with square bowls I feel pretty confident in using other shapes. So this is my first attempt at a four leaf clover. It might also remind one of a bubble pipe design which we all had as children. 

This Pipe also has a green hue which is the result of using both a blue dye and a light walnut dye. I removed more dye than I usually do, allowing the grain to really shine through and there is some beautiful grain to show off. 


  1. I'm putting this picture up on the blog for the St. Patrick's day recap, if that's ok. I'll link back here.
