Smooth Volcano (FH) (247)

Product Number: 002-615-0003

”Da Grain, da grain!” As reticent as any sane person would be about dry-gulching a line from “Fantasy Island”, this Scott Thile bent volcano sports a dazzling robe that simply can’t be overlooked. For me, pipes shapes often function as kind of a Rorschach test. To my mind, especially from the left forward perspective, this Thiele ‘Cano, with its tall shank, flared half-saddle bit that rises almost to the horizontal plane of the rim, and strong forward prow, assumes the spirit of a futuristic battle cruiser, perhaps even a submersible craft.

Like so many facets of Scott’s work, his stains (both smooth and sandblast) are world class. The former features an ultra-rich mocha hue that does a top notch job of highlighting straight, flame and birdseye, and this Krakatoa boasts all of the previously mentioned in spades. When talking with Scott, I complimented him on his stains. His answer was in keeping with the unfeigned humility that’s just part and parcel of his personality; “I’m glad you appreciate it, but there’s a ton of work ahead before I’ll be satisfied with it”. If this stain is a work in progress, I’m getting a brain cramp trying to picture what it might look like in a few more years.

--R. ‘Bear’ Graves
