Askwith: Sandblasted Morta Chubby Rhodesian
Product Number: 002-499-0280
Though maintaining quite an abbreviated style from end to end, this Chubby Rhodesian from Chris Askwith certainly does pack a lot of substance into its short length, making for a plump, comfortable feel in hand with its broad, shapely curves and stout proportions. The beefy, palm-filling bowl is positioned at a strong forwards cant, its visual prominence emphasized by being paired to a dramatically tapering shank and stem configuration. This particular piece is also a great example of what Chris can do with alternative mediums, crafting the stummel from jet-black, sandblasted morta and fitted with a colorful polyester mouthpiece of swirled scarlet, ebony, and lemon hues. The juxtaposition between the dark and vibrant tones adds even more playful charm to the already whimsically proportioned piece.- Andrew Wike
