Rolando Negoita Smooth Bent Dublin (2007)

Product Number: 004-009-5552

When Rolando Negoita was growing up in Romania, tobacco had to be smuggled into the country, and you were about as likely to come across a unicorn or leprechaun as a block of quality briar. This didn't stop Rolando from making pipes, however, making resourceful use of cherrywood and rose hip burls. If you had told him then that some day he'd be one of the most renowned American pipemaking artisans, and a teacher at the Parsons School of Design in New York to boot, well, maybe he would have believed you. It seems like he was quite the determined sort, even that early on. And as you can tell by looking at briars like this, we're all quite fortunate for that. With its deep bend and tall, strongly tapered bowl, this bent Dublin would have been an easy one to make sharp and rakish. But Rolando didn't do that. Instead he's managed flow of lines and the contours of form to create something every bit as dynamic as an angular rendition might have been, but which also possess a smooth elegance and gracefully balanced, easy and natural asymmetry as well.

- Eric N. Squires
