SMOOTH RUSTICATED ATLAS SMOKING PIPE
Henrik Rydberg is a Swedish pipe maker. Woodworking is a big hobby for him and especally pipemaking. He has made many models over the past years, but he often return to two types. He is mostly designs his pipes with a combination of smooth and rusticated methods. His two spesific types of shapes are so called them Atlas-pipes and Wrapped/draped- pipes.
"The Atlas-pipes came about during my attempts to rustacate by hand. When I saw the rusticated and smooth parts it looked like an old map to me. The Wrapped/draped-pipes come from an idea of a rusticated and that I try to hide the rusticated parts with sections of plain, smooth wood", the artisan said.
