Trever Talbert has some pretty cool pipes, but I do have to admit, some of the "sitters" he's made don't really appeal to my sense of bizarre... they seem a bit overcompensated, like something unbalanced was forced and converged in an off manner...

This I found neat, though...really focused on the birdseye, but gave masterful rustication...

==============================================================

...and then theres Michail Revyagin... this guy is SERIOUSLY out there... I dig his style. Cool It's funny, he gets more and more abstract with each year's collection... there's some really interesting things in there, like 'em or not--the guy's an artist--finding excellent balance amongst imbalance, if there ever was such a thing. His "standard" shapes are no less breathtaking. One thing he does in his more recent work is accentuating and making surreal very mundane parts of the pipe... like bends, stems, curves, sizes... I wonder where he gets his briar to do this stuff?

Wow! This one's called "The Nautilus." Can't see the resemblance, but... still nifty!

I think the nautilus is amazing.
I'm guessing that you can see the smoke through the little portholes?

I was honestly wondering the same thing. He's really into affixing stuff to some of his pipes, and from what I can tell, those "portholes" are either partially glass and mirror, or they're all glass, looking into a hollow chamber. I sure hope they pop out to clean... the color change would be a VERY fun process to watch, in any case! As well as the smoke.

...in addition, I'm not sure I'd smoke out of many of them, even if I liked them... much better on a pedestal with a light shining on them. It all depends on how they fit in the mouth and hand... if they were balanced physically as much as they were in art abstraction, I suppose that'd make them a real treasure. At least to me!

I'm a huge fan of Revyagin's work. It's totally unlike anything else out there and his innovations are extremely exciting. His interpretations of the blowfish shape are simply mindblowing! The bee calabash: brilliant! And then to see him taking his own innovations and then innovating them... this guy is really something else.

There's a two part interview of Revyagin at TobaccoDays.com which in large part tells the story of the Nautilus pipe mentioned in this post!

Here's part 1:
http://tobaccodays.com/changing-the-game/

Here's part 2:
http://tobaccodays.com/changing-the-game-part-2/

In case you're still curious where Revyagin gets his wood, he buys from a Spanish supplier by the name of Jaume Hom. Here's his website: http://www.briarblocks.com/pipes/index.htm

Pretty amazing artistic qualities fit for an art show but as far as smokability just not my cup of tea. Like they say, "different strokes for different folks".

Well, the number of guys on this forum who really appreciate (and can afford) art pipes is pretty low.
My taste in pipes is progressive, but not quite avant garde. Think Pink Floyd, as opposed to Van Der Graaf Generator (although I do like VDGG!)
But I say vive le differance! Let the freak flag fly. That's how the more interesting discussions are born.
So cheers to you Kyle, not that I'm in the least bit worried that you would be swayed by the tide!

However, when it comes to jazz, I do like the weird stuff...

Hey Kyle,

Another great pipe maker that is out of the ordinary is Wallenstein pipes. Some of them are very creature like, I'm a huge fan of his finishing style. Here's some of his work if you haven't seen it before.

Good call, Abe... about the only thing I don't like are the garish colors. I guess where I draw the line is how the wood is displayed. I REALLY LIKE wood grain, and covering it up when you're using good material kind of defeats the purpose of working with something as opposed to against it... eh, maybe that's just me.

This particular pipe just blew me away... It looks like it is in motion, and I love that. Cool

I like status quo, I like what goes against status quo. Because without status quo, there is nothing to go against in contrast. That should sum up all of my appreciation for everything in life I surround myself with. Cool

(...and a great way to say, "...hell yes I don't give a f**k... WOOOO!" ...but that would be trashy. Laughing

It's all quite amusing in the end (or it should be), and everyone should be comfortable where they are.

It's a good example of I WOULD try and smoke it, but I'd have to try REAL HARD not to break it. There are some physical design parameters that just limit smokability...either cumbersome design, inconvenient design or breakable design.

My absolute favorite weirdness is one that I can treat like a normal pipe, interact with it, care for it and enjoy it by its original and intrinsic nature, but mostly just be blown away every time I look at it while smoking. Smile At the very least, I'd hope that when I buy a real abstract piece, it comes with its own stand, as likely traditional stands are for traditional designs!

Kyle,
NO, you are not going on any blocked list as far as I'm concerned. Everyone has a different interpretation as to what one likes to collect/smoke and I certainly find it quite interesting what some carvers are doing out there. Thanks for the unique pipe photos it makes things interesting to say the least!! Very Happy

...of course I was totally joking. Smile Okay I admit, I only blocked a few people that are into straight billiards, and I had a bug-eyed fit over some paneled pipes, but I'm walking it off... albino albino albino

...another attractive element I find in some of these wacky pipes is how flexible briar can be. I read someplace that the stuff is getting rare, not only because 100 year old pieces that make the grade are harder to find, but the folks willing to do menial, dirty work for them are also harder to find. I'm not going to be as impressed with pipes made out of other material. Briar is the main reason why I smoke pipes--it's debatably the most beautiful wood turned in any craft.
