About The Artist:

Andrey Grigoriev was born in Saint-Petersburg in 1982. He started making pipes in 2004 as a hobby, while he was working as a professional engineer. In 2006 he met high grade Russian pipe carver Viktor Yashtylov and became his pupil. In 2010, with the help of master carver he became a professional pipe maker, and under Viktor's supervision he started to carve his own quality pipes under his own name. Now a teacher himself, Andrey works to train the next generation of carvers, including talented up-and-comer Mikail Garmash of Red Frontier Pipes.

About The Pipe:

Expertly shaped and full of gorgeous detail! Unique angles showcase amazing grain and contrast staining Andrey calls his “tiger striping” process. A rustic three knuckle section of bamboo was chosen to add even more dramatic detail, then the stem was painstakingly shaped with another faux knuckle to create a more fluid transition. Truly a one of a kind, expertly crafted piece by one of Russia’s most prolific modern carvers.
