PS Studio: Sandblasted Lovat with Zebrawood
Product Number: 002-458-0385
This Lovat from PS Studio may be compact, but it features plenty of muscularity and plump roundness in its small form. Russian artisan Vladimir Grechukhin designs the workshop's pipes and his own style is readily evident here, as this example effortlessly balances robust proportions with Danish-style shaping cues. The stout bowl displays a softly inflated rim and the well-defined transition creates some cheeking along the flanks. The thick, round shank stretches out to meet the sleek saddle stem, with the expansion disc along the stem base juxtaposed against the inward curl of the zebrawood accent. Although it measures barely over five inches in length, it still manages to offer a full-bodied presence in hand and a surprisingly generous chamber all dressed in a well-executed sandblasted that has coaxed out the briar's growth rings.- Jeffery Sitts
