Sandblasted Rhodesian

Product Number: 002-531-0049

Having recently (like five minutes ago) announced the presence of the first Bulldog we have ever received from Bruce Weaver, I pick up only the second Weaver Rhodesian to come our way... and soon after discover that the first hailed all the way back to Bruce’s Smokingpipes.com debut. I love the fact that Bruce’s’ talents, acumen with a daunting variety of forms, and overall sensibility result in never seeing a shaping family being metaphorically beaten to death... but come on!

Once one’s eyes have adjusted to Bruce’s superlative sandblasting and eye-popping grain, we have a straight Rhodesian interpretation, one that presents such a pronounced degree of implied forward momentum, that I am fighting the urge to find a radar gun. In a broad sense, a carver can create this not-uncertain spirit of movement within a shape one of two ways: a combination of placing the preponderance of the composition to the front, combined with a dramatic rearward taper (slipstream), or a method that the Japanese and Chinese would refer to as “elegant” (refined simplicity). This Weaver Rhodesian is rather the elegant one, don’t you think?
