Jess Chonowitsch Sandblasted Lovat

Product Number: 004-001-5769

Jess Chonowitsch is a master of shaping; several of the most evocatively Danish designs Stanwell ever made were drawn up by his hand, and that's saying a lot considering that such artisans as Sixten Ivarsson and Per and Ulf, the fellows behind S. Bang, also designed pipes for the marque. This Lovat is a solid example of a master returning back to basics. For example, as an inherently straight shape, any sense of gesture must be rendered through only subtle cues like the length of transition, the line of the underside and heel, and the angles of the bowl's forward and aft faces. The importance of just the right proportions is likewise magnified, as with the simple nature of the design, slight tweaks (like the low-profile, minimalist stem-base Jess used here) have a strong effect on the pipe's aesthetic character, and can quickly make or break its balance. So, did Jess pull it all off, and produce a Lovat shape worthy of a Danish master? Well of course he did. The man's not one of the biggest names in pipemaking, Danish-school or otherwise, for no reason.
