A curious combination of various elements, this Ashton Pebble Grain presents an unusual take on the Foursquare, typically about as simple a shape as can be. The bowl is Stack-like in height, both paneled on fore, aft, and flanks, as well as fluted along the corners. It's lofty proportions are in turn anchored by a solid lower bowl paired to a stout shank and transition, the former paneled only along the center of its top, bottom, and flanks, appearing rounded at first glance. Aside form all this creative shaping, this briar also offers an impressive sandblast - very rugged, yet showing loads and loads of ring grain.
