American Estates: Nate King Sandblasted Volcano Cavalier (269) (2015)

Product Number: 004-009-8203

Volcano and Cavalier aren't two pipe shapes I'd normally even associate with one another, but Nate King has done an excellent job here merging the two into a surprisingly interesting and coherent, singular composition. The shape of the bowl itself is evocative of certain wave-inspired Japanese or Danish renditions of the Volcano, featuring a canted rim, a slight spur beneath the transition, and a lot of ebb and flow to its dynamic, almost undulating lines. That dynamism fits in well with the light and lithe, almost Prince-like downturned stem, as well as the matching Cavalier cap/foot past the fore of the bowl — the latter even sporting its own arcing curves to emulate those found in the stummel itself. What's more, the entire composition actually sits on that aforementioned foot, with the entire pipe standing straight up along a flat surface.
