SMOOTH HORN SMOKING PIPE KIT
This stunning creation is the best example of the current ability of the Russian master Kotlyar to desing, carve and finish the high-end piece of art. Looking to the item, you can easily find a lot of beauties, and harmonies in the work of this artisan. The horn pipe is made of very high quality briar (almost with out any deficiency), and that was the reason why the artisan stained it very bright. Dazzling lines of briar on both side of the pipe together with partial bird-eye pattern add high value on this item. The Horn has the extension of the Olive Wood and it is in the harmony with the Olive Wood insertion on the mouthpiece.
The tamper is composed of small pieces of briar, Olive wood and ebonite mixed together in a very artistic way. The general shape of the Tamper is magnifying the shape of the pipe. The stand is made of the Olive Wood and very rear Bog Oak. The stand has four stand points for the pipe and tamper. When the pipe and tamper place on the stand, you can see the whole composition. Elegant design, creativity in idea, attention to the details, and stunning finish are just some examples of this creation. This luxury kit expresses the absolute essence of the art.
Peter Kotlyar was born (1973) and raised in Vladivostok city, Russia. The passion of carving the pipe was in his soul and soon he was completely fascinated by the variety of the shapes and systems. When he bough his first pipe and smoke it he was just thinking he could carve a pipe for himself and by his hands. The fist work was not perfect but very promising for him. Soon he carves more and more until the time that he became a master. He mostly learned from his mistakes and now his pipe are placed all around the world. " I am making pipes for my soul and not for the commerce" he said. He is carving his pipes with the briar from Spain and Sardinia, for the mouthpieces he uses the German ebonite and cumberland. He mostly inserts some antique materials in his smoking pipes and in this case he has his own unique way and technique to express his feeling during carving.
