Tsuge Ikebana: Sandblasted Bent Dublin Sitter (Ohi) (I) (351) (2014)
Product Number: 002-623-4599
Ohi's precise line work is well displayed in this sitting Dublin from Tsuge Ikebana. For a shape as structured as the Dublin most generally is, it's a particularly organic rendition with an asymmetrical rim draped across the top and curving downward to the crisp ridgeline that demarcates it and the flanks, which taper dramatically to the heel. That heel is flattened at an angle to promote easy sitting capabilities and welcome practicality, while the sandblasted finish offers terrific texture in hand.
The shank is slender and upward-curving, ending at an abbreviated stem base that introduces the long, tapering saddle configuration of the mouthpiece. The combination promotes a sense of emphasis for the bowl, its wide and angular presence accentuated by the contrast of visual weight. Loaded with character and irresistibly handsome, this is a pipe that will make your other pipes nervously competitive.- Chuck Stanion
