Sandblasted Blowfish with Boxwood

Product Number: 002-531-0046

While, intellectually, I understand my colleagues insistence on titling this alluring form as a ‘Blowfish’; the use of a tear-drop shank (and the resulting ridge) to subtly divide hemispheres has been long established by the likes of Lars and S. Bang. My heart, however, especially with the presence of a three-quarter bent shank, speaks to me more of a bent Egg, imbued with an intriguingly adorable character.

The slender form of the smooth rim ties back to the boxwood mount, creating a type of cool ‘start/finish’ signage, as well as emphasis for the previously mention ridge (probably best seen in picture #3). The presence of bowl, which already boasts a deft articulation that would be noticed within 10 feet, gets ramped even further through Weaver’s adroit manner of interfacing the same with the shank. As ‘totally swag’ as I find this composition, as a guy who looks at pipes all day, I am finding the grain as exciting as the execution. Rather than go ‘Master Blaster’ deep, as few other than Bruce can go, this blast is so gentle and discerning, that it makes a few high-grade Danish blasts I have seen look almost ham-handed by comparison. Yet (and yet!) look at what that gentle acumen wrought: not only growth rings that are as dense and concentric as tuning-fork ripples on still water, but a preservation of the feather-fine vertical grain as well. Great stuff.

--R. ‘Bear’ Graves
