New Pipes: Peter Heeschen: Sandblasted Cherrywood with Bamboo (A)  

Product Number: 002-283-0692

A marvelously architectural, conical bowl, imbued with flawless stability, offset by a quietly organic shank and stem. While, ‘on paper’, one might have thought that they were about to see a ‘quintessential Heeschen’, this sitter is quite different from most of Peter’s Cherrywoods, and the difference rests on two points: the transition of the top of shank off of the bowl, and the curvature of the shank and bit.

Usually, the shank and bits of Peter’s Cherrywoods will be every whit as architectural as the bowl; perfectly balanced sine waves which are jump-started by the form of the shank, as it comes off the bowl. In the fascinating case of the ‘A’ Grade now before you, there is no arc to the stem (heck, let’s call it ‘straight’), and the top of the shank does a marked drop, in order to ‘catch up’ with the bottom of the same. This approach, while not entirely unseen, is still rather rare; I believe I have run across it twice before, over the course of seven years of describing Peter’s art.

--R. ‘Bear’ Graves
