Danish Estates: Kent Rasmussen Sandblasted Volcano with Masur Birch (Unsmoked)
Product Number: 004-001-19045
A remarkably fluid and subtly gestural take on the Volcano shape, this piece from Kent Rasmussen is an exquisite example of both his signature Danish shaping style and his caliber as a pipe maker. The ring grain climbing the bowl is perfectly oriented, with each wave neatly tucked beneath the one atop it, producing a scale-like aesthetic and texture in hand. The shape itself is downright gorgeous as well — playful in its forward-ebbing bowl yet delightfully graceful in the sweeping gesture and flare of the shank. What's more, Kent has let that expert shaping speak for itself here, finishing the piece in a traditionally dark, low-contrast stain with a broad, contrasting accent of masur birch to really bring home the organic aesthetic. What's more, this piece is still unsmoked.- Andrew Wike
