Michael Parks: Partially Sandblasted Bulldog (V.13)
Product Number: 002-473-0045
Michael Parks works with a lot of classic shapes, sometimes producing conservative designs, other times really having fun with them. In the case fo this straight Bulldog, I'd say he had quite a good deal of fun with it. Granted, the Bulldog is, by nature, a shape which readily heads for a sturdy and firm, masculine style, but here he clearly just took off an ran with it. The result is a briar that looks, and feels, about as soft and pliant as a locomotive. The lines are strong, the form is packed with mass, and the ever-so-slightly forward posture of the bowl, followed up by the straight-back shot of shank and stem produce a subtle impression of effortless yet considerable momentum.
