Sandblasted Bent Dublin with Horn (Kikuchi) (BC)

Product Number: 002-623-4439

Zounds! (with an ‘Ods Bodkins!’ for emphasis). Up until this handsome BG Grade Ikebana, Kikuchi’s bent Dublins approached Danish purist in their execution; not exceptionally surprising given that her mentor was taught by Sixten Ivarsson. I guess, in some ways, writing about pipes shares a small commonality with the folks who project election results: never call it early, for there is precious little Danish about this bent Dublin, in fact it’s a decent measure away from previous Ikebanas.

Solidly sized in the larger Dunhill Group 5 range, this is probably the most masculine bent-D that I have seen from Tsuge Ikebana, and it is also the first time that I have detected aspects of the Acorn in the sandblasted execution. Normally, I would expect that gracile exchange between the shank and bowl to impart some femininity to the totality, rather it emphasizes the robust aspects of the latter, as well as the gorgeous horn at the flank. Speaking of the horn, while the sudden appearance of a dark, almost ‘paint brush’ stroke of black color on the material was serendipitous, Asami’s election to highlight the same by centering it at the top was a splendid decision. I think it adds an extra dash of cool.
