Smooth Bent Brandy with Paduak

Product Number: 002-633-0022

This is the second time we have seen a composition from Daniel Mustran that featured some predatory hints within the presence of an implied joint articulation. The first was a singularly wicked "Wasp" with a sense of being viewed through the (cinematic) Avatar lens (currently available for view in his gallery). While falling more within the classical oeuvre than his extraterrestrial hymenoptera, this hypnotically edgy bent Brandy isn't likely to be mistaken for (say) a Former, but is precisely this level of fascination that is drawing both newer and veteran pipe smoker to the carver in legions.

To set the stage, Daniel starts with a rather conventional Brandy/Apple bowl that features a superb stain and fine grain. Setting the stage, in this case, means creating an intuitive central point of focus in order to enhance the unexpected to follow, and the unanticipated surely does. The implied joint includes two prominent features: a larger oval which acts as a false mount (the actual mount lies just fore of the saddle of the stem), and the sudden shank reduction as it transitions onto the bowl. In addition to adding an insane amount of cool to the presentation, that slimming and subsequent disc provides a resting place that seems custom made for your ring finger. Mustran is rightfully applauded for his choice of accessorizing materials, and that fine inlay of paduak makes for a splendid finishing touch.
