Doctor's: Sandblasted Bent Dublin with Bamboo and Polymerized Dinosaur Bone (570) (Flash)
Product Number: 002-630-0060
Though his eye for detail is beyond adept, his use of accents especially unique, and his eye for design as playfully idiosyncratic as they come, Roman Kovalev makes no bones about his intentions for his work's impact on the pipesmoking community. Put simply: his work is exquisite, works of art in their own right, but his pipes aren't meant to be mere collector's items. They're meant for smoking.
Even such a poised, floral offering as this Horn-like bent Dublin, with its wavy, undulating plateau-adorned rim, with tight, concentric blasted ring-grain cascading down all flanks, practically begs to be enjoyed. It's acutely natural in hand, offering no shortage of interesting texture, and the stretch of gnarled, honey-blonde bamboo is waiting to take on color. Added to that, the polished nodes of polymerized dinosaur bone are a brilliant match to the bamboo's hue, thoroughly bolstering the piece's organic dynamism. It's as if this fellow just grew right out of the succinct saddle bit. It's such gorgeous work, it makes you wonder why Roman only lent it his single Flash grade.- Daniel Bumgardner
