Misc. Estates: Sergey Dyomin Sandblasted Rhodesian (2017)
Product Number: 004-008-6265
There's something mesmerizing and minimalist about a pipe that throws nearly all of its visual weight forward to the bowl, as this piece from Sergey Dyomin demonstrates. The saddle stem is proportionally longer than saddles typically reflect, but the design here renders the stem visually insignificant. Instead, the eye travels to the stummel, with its warm stain, low profile sandblast, and high waistline. The growth rings are so consistent that the pair of beadlines around the bowl could almost be part of the grain. Proportionally, this piece is reminiscent of Vladimir Grechukhin's style, which should be no surprise, given that Sergey learned his craft from Grechukhin. However, Sergey has evolved his own aesthetic, focusing on chubbier, more compact shapes. If you like a pipe that concentrates its energy on the bowl rather than the stem, Dyomin is a carver to watch.- Chuck Stanion
