Yeti: Sandblasted Strawberry with Bakelite (605)
Product Number: 002-660-0130
If you're a fan of Micah "Yeti" Cryder's work, then you're no doubt drawn to his organic shaping style and unrivaled use of Bakelite as an accent and stem material, making this Strawberry rendition a familiar and enticing sight. If, however, this is your first introduction to Micah's work, then it's the perfect first impression and no less enticing. Shape-wise, it caters well to Cryder's typically compact style, calling to mind an Acorn shape, with its slightly pointed heel, but with a less-rounded rim. Said rim is studded in the briar's natural plateau, adhering to the rustic aesthetic initiated by the sandblasted finish.
The sandblast is a touch deeper and craggier than Micah's usual fare, and at the time this pipe was made, the American carver was in the process of experimenting with different blasting nozzles and air pressures. The result is a gorgeous texture that highlights the briar's growth rings — still maintaining the silhouette's shape but with a slight undulation around the edges, best experienced in the palm. The chocolate-stain glows in the right light, yet it remains dark enough to draw the eye to Bakelite stem and accent ring: Picked by Cryder to emulate emerald and quartz, the pairing is colorful, modern, and individualistic, cementing this pipe as a gem among any collection of artisan pipes.-Truett Smith
