Gregor Lobnik

Smooth Bent Dublin with Bamboo (Lightning)

$1,850 SGD

Gregor Lobnik's Lightning grade designates the Slovenian carver's superlative work, and it's a stamp used sparingly. For reference, we've received only three Lightning-grade Lobnik pipes in the past decade — this bent Dublin being the fourth. An extremely compact piece, it features a stem that barely recurves at all, continuing the upward trajectory of the shank and resulting in an extra-short overall length.

The shank's curve is informed by a tightly knuckled section of bamboo, and Gregor incorporated it deftly — the bamboo's curve seamlessly continued by the abbreviated shank, cohesively marrying the alternative material to the composition.

From there, the bowl flares tall and proud, boasting thick insulating walls and a chamber that belies the pipe's overall size. Exquisite shaping combined with a striking accent and marked by gorgeous grain, it's no wonder this piece received Gregor's highest grade.
