Wow I'm not a rustication fan but this style, by Micheal Revyagin I just love it....And, can you imagine the work that was put on these pipes?





They're simply gorgeous. Awesome job, Mike!

I really like anytime a carver can incorporate a pipes theme into the stem (think Anna Julie)!! I don't know why it's not done more often.
I love and collect rusticated pipes. My favorites are a well worked Sea Rock and deeply chiseled Rock style Epoca. The great pieces are works of art and have nothing in common with most of the ho hum pock marked pipes that I see (and own). Shocked

Visually intriguing for sure. Thanks for sharing, Guyrox.

Betcha he could do some great checkering on a rifle stock.

Not a pipe I'd ever own, but he certainly gets high marks for craftsmanship!


Cheers,

RR

Not exactly what is normally called "rustication" I'd say, more like just surface carving . They both are done nicely but not what I'd buy !! Twisted Evil

I wouldn't call it rustication either. Far more designed & regular patterned, so to speak. It's very handsome!

I would absolutely love to have one of Michail's pipes in my collection, but in recent years the prices have skyrocketed. I like just about everything I have ever seen him carve. cheers cheers cheers

I love gawking at his pipes.  Great geometry and admirable sculpture.  These are ugly, though.

It's the shape of the pipe that I don't like. The carving is interesting. But what I would really like to have is a nice billiard (or similar shape) with checkering like in 1911 grips.

Well, shape is a matter of what the Briar suggests along with the carver's artistic vision. The vision is his. Liking it or not is the viewer's prerogative. Now, I know we all understand the above...and I put it out there as a preface to the following comment...that the further an artist moves from what is considered traditional the more likely it is that a smaller percentage of the viewing population will embrace that design. Cases are all over and likely through all time. I've studied quite a bit of Art History and it's a significant theme.

So...while one person doesn't prefer this sort of interpretation, others do. Me...I think this is very interesting and looks like technically solid work...but I don't prefer it either. I like a more traditional approach.

I also think a 'fine checkered' treatment on a classic shape would be pleasing. It kind of calls to mind the idea of 'micro rustication' as practised by Brackner (I think that's the right spelling).

Whatever. They are cool pipes. Fun to chew on the concepts now and again. What it's all about, etc.

Sorry; for me Zeno's last sentence nailed it.
