Abe Herbaugh: Sandblasted Peewit with Horn
Product Number: 002-614-0135
Considered by many to be the pioneer of artisan pipe making, Sixten Ivarsson's impact and guidance remains pervasive in the workings of modern carvers. His much-ballyhooed Peewit shape continues to enthrall, with many interpretations seen.
Abe Herbaugh celebrates the Peewit pipe in this organic rendition, the shape Acorn-like, tall, and forward canting. The bowl also features a brisk taper toward its heel spur and a gently rounded, sloping rim. The supple curves and softened lines are seen throughout this piece, with the American carver pairing the bowl with a slender shank-and-stem arrangement. The stummel wears a natural stained sandblast, highlighting tight stacks of handsome growth rings, while the homage to Ivarsson can also be seen in the horn mount, as Sixten was among the first to utilize such accenting material in design rather than in covering up flaws. This piece is topped by an ebony-hued, push-style stem, with the domed base continuing the trajectory of the accent. A stunning pipe from one of the most talented North American carvers.-Angela Robertson
