New Pipes: Satou: Sandblasted Bent Dublin  

Product Number: 002-142-0325

I'll readily admit a hesitancy to use the adjective ‘prototypical’ anywhere near a Satou pipe, even when the adnoun is perfectly apt. Perhaps because Satou’s work (much like Toku-san’s) always presents something unique, something that stands out enough from other iterations he has created within the milieu that I always feel like I’m seeing something at least a wee bit ‘fresh’. Setting my personal quirk aside, when it comes to his sandblasted bent Dublins, this accordant form could be a poster-child.

The compression of the horizontal axis speaks more to the katachi rather than wabi-sabi aspects of Satou's art, following an architectural (albeit Nihon) line and eschewing asymmetry. This compression not only increases the size of the grain's canvas, but look at the effect on the softly domed rim. Smio has long resided within my 'all-time favorite carvers' list, and this Dublin simply reinforces his status.
