Smooth Acorn with Bamboo

Product Number: 002-357-0066

While much of Gregor Lobnik's design-work speaks of the strong influence of Peter Matzhold, who taught him pipemaking, Gregor does distinguish himself in several ways; the scale in which he typical works, his richer, bolder finishes, and, as in this case, the occasional jaunt from Peter's Austrian Architecture-influenced approach to shaping. Granted, there is still a similar graceful minimalism at play here, but if I had seen this pipe without any name attached to it, my first guess would have been that is was the work of a Japanese or Danish artisan - and a highly skilled one at that. and even then there is a certain uniqueness at play here, as Gregor has paired this almost unbelievable smooth little Acorn bowl (you really need to hold it to fully appreciate just how smooth it is) to a bamboo stem which has been neither lightened nor darkened, but simply cleaned up and left natural, right down to the knobs of the knuckles. This sets up an interesting contrast with the precise, seamless, controlled form of the bowl and transition, and the imperfect naturalism of the bamboo, even while the latter's slenderness and delicateness of proportions fits into the composition as a whole just perfectly.
