Sandblasted Leaping Fish (3 Stars)

Product Number: 002-519-0028

As of late Maigurs Knets has preferred to produce rather sculptural, highly organic, often wildly composed and intricately detailed pipes like the piece before you. Sitting down to write out a proper description on the thing is quite a challenge, as the sort of normal pretenses like 'balanced' or 'proportioned' not only break down here, they're also utterly moot considerations in the first place. This latest work from the carver isn't about 'balance' as we discuss it ordinarily, although its parts correspond to one another with perfect equilibrium. This piece doesn't beg to be contemplated in terms of how its shank is proportioned relative to its mouthpiece or bowl, though it is dimensionally interesting and its components do harmonize handsomely. What this Leaping Fish does is inspire a feeling of whimsy and stimulate a sense of the natural world. And I think that's exactly what it's supposed to do.
