Mark Tinsky: Odin's Spear


During the doldrums of pipe smoking, Mark Tinsky did a lot of repairs and made relatively few new pipes. These days, Mark's pipes are in high demand, and he hardly ever does repair work himself anymore.

But before Mark became very busy, he had the time to surprise me with a few very unique pipes, such as Driftwood. Equally surprising but also a pleasure, Mark made some versions of my 3d pipes, the following being Odin's spear.

Mark did, as usual, a splendid job in capturing the mood of my original 3d artwork. (And if the briar had cooperated a little better, I would have had another natural-grain pipe.)
