American Estates: J. Alan Sandblasted Strawberry (283) (2009)
Product Number: 004-009-11829
Jeff Gracik of J. Alan pipes produces Strawberry renditions of varying degrees of streamlined intensity, from rapidly sweeping numbers to eager, affable fellows imbued with a jaunty heel. This one is somewhere in the middle, as it presents a silhouette of lively jauntiness, imbued with a sprightly heel at the underside, and a smart, gently-flaring shank that curls to come to rest at the slip of a saddle stem. Finished in a warm, smoldering sandblast, there's loads of stacked ring-grain climbing all flanks of the bowl, culminating in a light crown of undulating plateau. Only a little rim darkening and some light oxidation; otherwise condition is good.- Daniel Bumgardner
