Werner Mummert: Sandblasted Old Oak Bent Brandy
Product Number: 002-560-0084
In the Old Oaks we find pipes Werner has shaped from a material with more than a little extra aging under its belt; the oak in question came out of beams salvaged from a 16th century church. While some pipes in this series receive a black finish for the familiar morta look, the outer surface of this shapely bent Brandy has been given only to a light brush with an oxidizing treatment, lending a dusky olive-toned tan to its sand-etched exterior. The color is warm, dark, and rustic, the texture fine, and the generous curves full and pleasing in hand.
