Partially Rusticated Pitcher

Product Number: 002-633-0021

The first word that popped into my head when I spied this Daniel Mustran Pitcher was timeless. Timeless, in about as literal sense of the word as it gets; I see elements I would associate with both the ancient water vessels of Greece and Rome (pic #2), as well as the obvious futurist aspects. When a presentation can twist my head as easily as Pazuzu with a Regan MacNeil, and do so on first pass, I usually anticipate that further inspection will only make the composition more intriguing, and Mustran didn’t disappoint.

To just get it out of the way; yes, it sits. Almost all of Daniel’s pipes do. What it sits on, however, is stunningly executed (pic #4) and begins a labyrinthine path of delightfully interconnecting forms and elements in opposition. Referring again to #4, note the expanding echo of the heel, first within bulge/edge of the body, and again (in opposition) at the hook on the rim. From either side (best seen in flat silhouette), the continuous line which runs from the front of the rim to the fore of the heel, actually forms an abstract of the Greek letter Omega (seriously). Looking at the underside of the bridge formed by the "handle", and its tight proximity to the cupping of the shank as it bolsters the body, Daniel put in a hellish amount of file work here, and great tight-quarters work it is.
