Sandblasted Volcano

Product Number: 002-531-0047

While, as a broad category, I usually find little of interest in Volcanoes, Weaver’s ‘canoes have always been one of my exceptions. Every ‘Brucano’, (sounds kinda like the proper pronunciation of ‘bruschetta’ [bruˈsketta]), that I have seen, has boasted a dramatic, sweeping flow as well as an amazing (for a Volcano) sense of 100/0 intent-to-wonk ratio. His Volcanoes don’t heavily hew to either side of the Danish/Japanese spectrum, but rather seem to adopt the parts from each aesthetic that are most useful in maintaining that supple, modernist feeling. Neither East nor West... until this beauty arrived. Did anyone else just hear a temple gong?

The shape, while still favoring the architectural over overt organicism, does make fine use of subtle bits of asymmetry, and the totality takes my mind to some of the Fukuda Ikebana interpretations of the form that I have encountered in the past. The rim is a thing of real beauty; a perfectly circular perimeter (picture # 3) which, via the interior bevel, transforms into a poignantly subtle ellipsis from the smoker’s perspective (picture #6). Moving down the countless (well, I’m not counting them) rings of cooled lava, following the path of the wicked vertical grain, we arrive at a superlative base, complete with a fin-like spur to the aft which enables this composition to sit with admirable stability. This is the first time that I have seen Weaver use this stem on a Brucano, and the blast suits the overarching anima of this briar to perfection.
