Handmade Smoking Pipe Stand : 3

The image of a pipe stand surf.
If I say that I leave the scalp is distorted and finish "Tezukune"
Will you feel like a traditional Japanese Raku pottery in earnest?
But I only made ​​easily cut corners because it troublesome.
I like the feeling tense porcelain sharper than pottery,
To match the pipe smoking feel like the temperature of a human
I was rustic only to finish shaped clay.

Silver line drawn in black texture,
Order to make the image sharpness, so too chubby and dullness
It is a decorative accent was placed.

In modern Japanese society amateur performance is recognized as art,
"It's my thread of nostalgia to live off the Seto Inland Sea"
If I speak plausiblywould be appreciated as an art ...
Ha ha ha

Pipe stand by my sculpture: 2  "Life is just long, and only hope is large"

Night, I feel desperate to see this wrist in a dark room. 
The buffeted destiny such as being swallowed into a bottomless swamp,
Struggle out of the water and grab even a faint hope
Sad to 
look like the last wrist.

HoweverI like this time of the day.
Packing the tobacco in pipestruck a match ignited it.
It is a good time just to listen to the all movements of the concerto or symphony.
Familiar music is heard like different music.

I've tried to create a pipe stand,
But I wonder the effects of pipe smoking which causes things to think deeply,
It has become my own mental representation.

Pipe stand is easier because of the good,
Now, I'm making a new one.
The image of the rolling waves on the white sandy beaches,
of my home island.

Dunhill trying to respond to the support of our last smoking generation.

I had felt it more attractive finish "Shell" is more "Briere"
But I fell in love the "Shell" and compare the two.

In 1917, Alfred Dunhill has produced sandblast finish.
"Shell" is a typical pipe symbolizes the Dunhill.
Surrounding the pipe ring stripes of uneven Breyer has emerged.
Massive beauty black paint was pressed by the beauty of nature,
Not want to stick out loudly, and the best clothing sober dare
I feel a touch of class leading to the British sense of dress down.
And I think that leads to cultural aesthetics of Japanese Wabi apology.

Call it "Shell" Dunhill sandblast finish this
Make a sound when a craftsman rather than carry the material 
which has been subjected to sandblasting at the factory,
 "sounds like the sound of shells" Alfred Dunhill said.
And it was named 
"Shell briar" by him.
Sensibility of dunhill shell listening noise and the sound of the material is issued,
He was a poet and a great artist.
Such as hardness and lightness required for pipe shells have linked
It is a great naming.

Great men, Mr. Masaru Ibuka of Sony and Honda Soichiro Honda, and more.
Founder of growing businesses to large companies worldwide
It 's an artist to focus on the joy of creating things than the pursuit of profit.

Initiallyit was the family business as well saddlery Alfred Dunhill.
Howeverhe founded the "Dunhill Motorities" 

turned to selling automobile accessoriesthat fit with the times.
Had been treated horn, lights, goggles, and meter,
Pipes windshield for the drive that was invented by Dunhill is to be a great hit,
Largest growth in the industrybecame the basis of Dunhill smoking device.

Sandblasting, the car enthusiasts are well known.
Use abrasive emery harder then a diamond,
Scrape off the soft part of the wood grain is injected 

at high pressure into the pipe surface,
It is a method that highlights the portion finishing hard wood.
Become lighter the better heat dissipation effect increases the surface area.

Shell pipe feels lighter than the same weight of pipe.
Moment that mouth, there is still something good pipe make a difference know.
It is the same as the difference between mini car Esse, 

the performance of the Porsche C4S.
Esse is me working reliably in the rain and snow and shopping.
Porsche who works to best effect in a long drive.
that said, each pipe has the advantages of each.

So I would also love other cheep pipe.

Either way, the pipe smoker would go disappear over time.
Dunhill name came to reign in 100 years the world's smokers.
Currently, Dunhill pipe & goods has been in existence 

and the name changed to "White Spot".
It tries to respond to the last generation of smokers to support us
Will such pride and obligation from the prestigious · · ·.

Say that there is no way the smell of your wife about to escape.

"Commonwealth Mixture is a light, cool, sweet smoke with a creamy tone. 
This tin is smokey-sour, the room note drives your wife away
but the pipe is pure joy from the beginning 
to the last puff." 

The above text was written with the pipe tobacco 
It is part of the tobacco review in the USA.
"the room note drives your wife away ..." in this joke,
I feel remorse egoism all smokers have.

There is an entry for "Room Note" to the introduction pipe tobacco overseas,
It has been rated as such Pleasant / Tolerable / Strong. etc.
But, in Japan, testimonials and pipe tobacco store goods,
There is a statement storyteller geek speak to mimic the received opinion of experts.
Touched not impressions up to the smell of the room.
Might symbolize the immature Japanese individualism.

I love the smell of tobacco smoke is also fascinating,
People hate to tobacco smoke It's a smell unbearable.
It is well known issue if I think of my childhood.
Because I want to live in a room like the scent of a good cigar drifting.
I have chosen to consider the scent of the room also had been smoking cigars ever.
There were many fascinating brand strong aroma in the cheep cigar.
But, I have put up feeling like the smell of cheep perfume filled the room.
Nowalso in Cyprus Latakia leaf aroma that attracts me most,
Would not only smell of hell to those who hate. 
And then focus on the smell of the room "Room Note: Very Pleasant !"
I bought a large amount  W.O. Larsen 1864.

Say joke that there is no way to the room note drives your wife away.
I must be prepare as a gentleman.
I lived alone unrestrained, is also occasionally visitors.
My favorite tobacco "Commonwealth Mixture" and "Squadron Leaders".
When I walked in the woods with PepeI let smoke secretly.
Ha Ha Ha...
