Yeti: Partially Sandblasted Bent Dublin with Boxwood (352)
Product Number: 002-660-0065
When it comes to dual finishes, Micah tends to go for more subtle treatments — complementing a sandblasted stummel with a smooth polished panel or a contrast stained rim. This bent Dublin, as you can see, isn't one of those pieces. Micah's gone for an overt juxtaposition here in this piece, marking a clear division between bowl and shank — not only in the contrasting finishes, but also in the pronounced fluting line where the two meet. I can see a little Grechukhin influence in how Micah's oriented that dividing line just a touch past the actual transition, allowing it to climb up the fore and down to the underside of the bowl itself; yet Vladimir tends to pair these types of designs with more rounded bowl forms. Micah, on the other hand, sets up even more contrast by keeping the bowl sharply tapered and firm of line. It works to great effect, too, with the bowl seemingly emerging from the arcing shank, spouting out an impressive display of flame grain as it crests.
