Misc. Estates: Peter Matzhold Smooth Brandy (4D)
Product Number: 004-008-6733
An Austrian carver who fashions primarily smooth pipes, Peter Matzhold often boasts a clean, minimalist aesthetic in his work, fashioning classics or subtly unique renditions that prioritize superlative shaping, finishing, and engineering (no doubt the product of Peter's past career as a talented architect). This Brandy makes for a stunning example of the artisan's portfolio, with the soft, lifted heel nodding to Danish design cues. That said, Matzhold has defined the bowl by a muscular, almost stolid presence, as the walls are slightly rounded and substantial. Such bowl proportions stand out in contrast to the shank's lithe nature, hinting at the bold, utilitarian style often seen in German pipe making. The light, natural stain highlights the briar's immaculate grain, with birdseye adorning the flanks.- Jeffery Sitts
