The two Buddha belly strawberry wood pipes which appeared in Doc’s Smokingpipes.com debut sold within a few minutes of going up, and frankly I was a bit surprised that it took that long. Looking past the improbably beautiful grain created by Kovalev’s unique sandblasting apparatus and technique, the earthen harmony created within the hues of cumberland, medium cream in the bamboo and the coffee/russet of the stain (as if that were possible), the form is quite compelling. Once in the paw, I can easily imagine that I am holding an artifact; perhaps an ancient smoke stone, and enjoying watching my smoke rise into an evening sky, joining stars which burn with a hypnotic brilliance and ferocity (the electrical grid is still centuries away). Given that this type of presentation is one of the most recent out there, I find the dichotomy between feeling and fact a bit heady. Don’t miss this one.
