Michail Kyriazanos: Smooth Bulldog
Product Number: 002-629-0123
The Bulldog is a timeless pipe shape, having remained immensely popular since the early 1900s, and such a traditional design caters well to the classic style of Michail Kyriazanos. We've seen several examples from the Greek carver, but this one here incorporates some creative touches, distancing it slightly from the more classic renditions. Most striking is how slender Kyriazanos has rendered the diamond shank: It tapers seamlessly from the transition and through the stem, almost pencil-like of diameter, yet retaining the form's crisp facets. This design element leads the eye into the beadlined bowl, which displays a strong forward cant, a creative touch from Michail that continues the inherent momentum of the stem and shank. It's a unique take on the traditional shape, doing well to balance the carver's love for classic shapes with his own individual interpretation.-Truett Smith
