New Pipes: Chris Asteriou: Smooth Blowfish with Bamboo  

Product Number: 002-540-0015

While sublime classically-oriented designs are artisan Chris Asteriou's "pillar" as it were, he doesn't shy away from using the skills he's developed through them to create modern fare as well. So it is that we find this little Blowfish before us, a complex, yet wonderfully precise briar that plays on the "balanced asymmetry" of the Japanese style it appears to have been inspired by. Whereas skilled Japanese artisans will typically render said asymmetry as organic throughout, Chris has evidently played with balancing out not just a design that's asymmetrical in form or line, but in style as well; the right half of this briar's bowl is smoothly, softly shaped, as in the established, organic Japanese approach, yet the left, though also smooth, is far firmer and more forceful, as if the right had been mirrored in the style of a piece of abstract Western sculpture.
