Abe Herbaugh: Sandblasted Asymmetric Bent Pot with Horn
Product Number: 002-614-0077
Though we haven't seen a piece quite like this one from Abe Herbaugh before, it didn't surprise me in the least to discover this Asymmetric bent Pot was the work of the esteemed carver. We see him make use of a similar sense of gesture, along with a degree of playful asymmetry, as presented about the bowl here. Finished in a light, craggy tanblast, complemented by a mount of creamy light and dark horn, it epitomizes the pipemaker's penchant for fusing streamlined linework with a more affable, pastoral style. Bolstering that aforementioned sleekness is an elegant iteration of the carver's parabolic Gladiolus Bulb saddle-stem base, inspired by a similar design from Sixten Ivarsson. Abe's been playing with the design of this specific cue for some time, and this exquisite piece is a testament to that evolution. I'm a fan.- Daniel Bumgardner
