Misc. Estates: Valery Ryzhenko Sandblasted Bent Bulldog
Product Number: 004-008-6220
Influenced by such pipe makers as Bill Taylor, Hans "Former" Nielsen, Tom Eltang, and Luigi Viprati, Valery Ryzhenko projects his own individualistic style, as is evident in this sandblasted Bulldog. The forward heel spur is particularly prominent and aids in an impression of forward momentum. The shank is compressed at the transition, expanding gently toward the saddle stem in well-defined diamond form, its ridges crisp throughout. Double beadlines circle the bowl's waist and introduce the rim of blasted birdseye, and waves of ring grain below. Beautifully balanced and visually stunning.- Chuck Stanion
