New Pipes: Doctor's: Sandblasted Strawberry Wood Bent Dublin Churchwarden with Bamboo  

Product Number: 002-630-0003

What happens if you put a powerfully crashing wave at the end of a long, slender tavern-pipe's stem? I don't know, but Roman has certainly done a fine job of capturing the idea, albeit in the form of deep-textured strawberry wood and lightly sandblasted bamboo, rather than a fragile tube of clay and several thousand pounds of high-velocity salt water. The funny thing is, while the proportions of this composition are elegant, the impression created by the manner he's handled it doesn't leave me thinking of the stem in terms of poised figures sitting at their leisure in old oil paintings, but of that drawn-out, muted pause that precedes some great wall of ocean slapping you in the back. The stem, that is to say, is like that long, smooth rush of water that draws back from the shore before the wave hits you, suddenly awakening your senses. It fits beautifully within the shape of the pipe, and, when you think about it, its intended purpose as well.

- Eric N. Squires
