PS Studio: Sandblasted Billiard
Product Number: 002-458-0354
This Billiard from PS Studio may be of nosewarmer length, but it features plenty of muscularity and plump roundness in its small form. Master carver Vladimir Grechukhin designs the Russian workshop's pipes and his own style is readily evident here, as this example balances robust proportions with Danish-style shaping cues effortlessly. The stout bowl displays a softly inflated rim and the well-defined transition creates some cheeking along the flanks. The abbreviated shank is followed by a neat saddle stem out back, putting much of the piece's visual weight on the voluptuous bowl. Although it measures just under four and a half inches in length, it still manages to offer a full-bodied presence in hand and a surprisingly generous chamber all dressed in a jet-black sandblast for a classy, dress pipe aesthetic.- Jeffery Sitts
