Sandblasted Cool Cowboy with Bocote

Product Number: 002-568-0019

With a body color that falls between lion and earth yellow, as well as dramatic dark brown/black striping, bocote pairs beautifully with Baston’s rust stain and, much in the case of the bowl and shank, will darken over time, keeping that fine complement going for nigh forever. G. Bastion takes on a decidedly industrial, as well as highly practical, established shape and makes it his own. While a “pipe shaped like a (plumbing) pipe” has been a signature shape of Tom Eltang, as well as an occasional approach seen from Rolando, neither have amplified that quirky-cool reverse proportionality between the bowl and shank by extending the latter, at least not nearly to this extent.

Grant calls this design a “Cool Cowboy”. The cool is obvious, both in modernist underpinning of the shape, as well as the smoke-chilling benefits of such a long, hollow shank. Cowboy comes into play within a straight forward, no-nonsense approach to the finish and spirit of the composition. Batson comes from cowboy stock – the men who work livestock, ride horses during the long day, and wear a hat and boots because that’s what the work demands, not as a fashion statement. He wanted that sensibility reflected in the simplicity of presentation. Having said, there is nothing “workaday” about the beautiful grain he coaxed out throughout the bowl and shank. Nice.

--R. 'Bear' Graves
