American Estates: J. Alan Sanblasted Tomato (280) (2009)
Product Number: 004-009-14776
It seems nearly contradictory to describe a Tomato shape as sinuous, but here you see it. The curve of this J. Alan sandblast is minimalist, the stem barely providing a downturn, but it's visually more pronounced when combined with the rounded forward cant of the bowl. The heel lifts dramatically on the far side for an emphasis on the organic shaping of the bowl, while the rim maintains the sandblasted texture and offers a chamfered angle into the tobacco chamber. The oval shank contributes to the form's broad dimensions and appeal, and the shank-and-stem combination gently tapers away from the bowl in effortless diminution.- Chuck Stanion
