American Estates: Scott Klein Sandblasted Tomato with Horn Ferrule (2016) (Unsmoked)
Product Number: 004-009-9145
Well. I've seen a number of Scott's horn-ferruled pieces at this point (as anyone familiar with his work can likely attest), but this one, to my eye, is an especially fetching integration of the creamy, organic material into the composition at large. And indeed, that's saying something, as quite often what what comes to mind when many of us think of the carver's work are these upward-flicking, horn-mounted pieces. This one, though, with its dark, smokey stretch of the stuff flaring gently to meet a streamlined, rounded saddle stem, not to mention the way it complements the dark-stained, sandblasted briar, the inner rim of which is highlighted in a bright, warm contrast— it all speaks to Scott's serious talent for fashioning charming, dynamic pieces with every cue taken into account. Unsmoked.
