German Estates: Frank Axmacher Sandblasted Apple (2014) (Unsmoked)
Product Number: 004-005-5058
A former stonemason and sculptor, Frank Axmacher's stylistic range as an artisan pipe maker is truly impressive. He often crafts creative Freehand designs inspired by architecture or the natural world, but this straight Apple certainly demonstrates Axmacher's skill with traditional forms. The affably rounded bowl emerges from the slightly stretched transition, its visual prominence accentuated by the elongated, oval shank and low-profile saddle stem. A light-depth sandblast adorns the stummel, unveiling patterns of undulating grain underneath the dark stain while also offering ample texture to enjoy in hand. It's an ideal piece for those who desire a more straightforward, classically inclined shape and is presented here in unsmoked condition.- Jeffery Sitts
