SMOOTH REVERSE-CALABASH SMOKING PIPE
This beautiful sculptural Reverse-Calabash pipe expresses the absolute tight lines of briar with charming finish. The pipe is a self-standing example and has three standpoints at the bottom. Tobacco Chamber narrows down from top to down and mixed with the first stand in front of the pipe. The second Chamber is a cylinder-formed which ends with two standpoints. Sucupria extension at the cylinder Chamber makes a wonderful harmony with both reddish-black cumberland mouthpiece and the general color and finish of the pipe.
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.
