Michail Kyriazanos: Sandblasted Billiard with Silver Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-629-0147
Greek artisan Michail Kyriazanos has a deep appreciation for traditional forms, and he often takes inspiration from classic Anglo-French standards, which he believes represent the pinnacle of functionality and aesthetic perfection. His style could be easily described as elegant yet refined, as he showcases a mastery of the form without indulging in the superfluous. One needn't look further than this Billiard to see that Kyriazanos understands the beauty of simplicity and tradition.
A pitch-perfect rendition of the Anglo-French staple, this Billiard boasts a tall, upright bowl that's posed at the fore of a sleek, arrow-straight shank-and-stem arrangement. As one might imagine, this piece is perfectly balanced, with the visual and physical weight evenly distributed across the bowl, shank, and stem, resulting in a composition that's streamlined in profile and comfortable in hand. Not to rest on gorgeous shaping alone, Kyriazanos has dressed this piece in a jet-black sandblast that highlights marvelous grain across the length of the stummel. A sterling silver accent adorns the shank end and ties the entire composition together with a touch of vibrant flash, its gleaming complexion adding just the right amount of contrast to the rest of the pipe's shadowy palette.--Davin Hylton
