Kabab Cavalier with Horn and Bamboo with Stand and Tamper

Product Number: 002-568-0016

Well smack my flanks and call me “Seabiscuit”! Titled by Mr. Batson as “Kebab”, this is far and away the most ambitious presentation that we have seen from the notable Nashvillian, brimming with a multitude of fascinating and attention-grabbing elements, the majority of which this describer has never encountered before.

While titled as a Cavalier, which is more than justified by the long extension of bamboo past the bowl, this smokable sculpture is actually a functional Calabash; there is a fine, smoke-cooling chamber incorporated within that marvelously massive mount of horn. The decided Nihon-inspiration of the bowl, right down to the deft placement of plateau on the right and the breath-taking, multi-hued bamboo, juxtaposes with the “Country” theme of the guitar pick stand (fashioned from curly maple and cocobolo employed for the tamper holder and mount retainer), in quite a fascinating manner. In an attempt to coin a term for this one of a kind amalgam, I almost said “Buckaroo Banzai”, but that would imply the presence of irony, rather than a sense of cool fascination.
