About The Artist:

Uniquely inspired rustication styles, idealistic symmetry and stunning lines are a few of the pipe carving characteristics you can expect from Wandi Riyandi.  Born in the Indonesian province of West Java, Wandi’s earliest fascination with pipe smoking began watching the older men in his community smoking pipes. After long days of labouring in front of a computer screen, Wandi found a companion in pipes and pipe smoking. This companionship would later develop into a full time career in pipe carving.

Wandi Riyandi attributes his aesthetics and craftsmanship to influential pipe carvers like Grant Batson and Hiroyuki Tokutomi to name a few, and gives the utmost praise to the late Rainer Barbi for his lessons in drilling technique.

Author’s Note’s:

I’ve been following Wandi’s work via social media since about 2015. While his early pieces were a bit more experimental, his style has settled into something more refined, yet he hasn’t lost his edge for pushing the stylistic envelope.
