Wandi Riyadi: Smooth Tulip with Horn (6110) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 002-922-0011

Native to Indonesia, Wandi Riyadi initially carved out a career as an IT engineer before picking up pipe smoking in 2011. Entranced by the craftsmanship of handmade pipes, Riyadi soon carved out a new career, one as a full-time pipe maker. One of Indonesia's only artisan pipe-makers, Riyadi draws on the Scandinavian and Japanese greats for inspiration, primarily the Ivarssons, Bo Nordh, and Hiroyuki Tokutomi. Many of Riyadi's pieces showcase dramatic designs marked by arcing flutes and pronounced ridgelines, although he does possess an affinity for crafting traditional shapes as well. Furthermore, Riyadi dresses most of his pipes in smooth finishes that highlight spectacular grain, but also utilizes rustications to create pieces with craggy and intriguing textures.

This Tulip by Wandi Riyadi immediately entrances with its stylized bowl. The walls flare outwards from a superbly tight transition and dramatically ascend to a supple waistline that bulges just below the rim. Said rim possesses a concave curvature that is framed by two soft peaks on the aft and fore, the latter of which also boasts a tactile outcropping of plateau. Out back, the shank is almost entirely comprised of a horn ferrule, and its mortise has been reinforced with a brass ring for additional durability. Furthermore, the creamy hues of the horn elegantly complements the chestnut smooth finish that dresses the stummel, which highlights tantalizing streaks of flame grain on the walls that explode into swirls of birdseye on the curvaceous rim.
