New Pipes: Grechukhin: Sandblasted Long Shank Bent Apple (G)  

Product Number: 002-497-0026

This particular bent Apple presents us with a fine example of a proper Grechukhin design signature, namely the long, arcing, broad-flanked, yet almost blade-thin shank and transition. In silhouette it's reminiscent of Lars Ivarsson, but the pronounced thinness of the cross-section is very much Vladimir's - other artisans are known to occasionally try it, but none so frequently or to such a degree as Grechukhin. Though a seemingly simple alteration, it really has a drastic effect, both on the look of the shank itself and in the way it works to emphasize the full and rounded form of a bowl like this. Furthermore, the long, flat flanks it creates also provide for a fine way to show off either flame or ring grain - or as in this case, both at once.
