Askwith: Moon Rock Billiard
Product Number: 002-499-0303
A finish of interstellar magnitude, Chris Askwith's Moon Rock offers a distinct, astral aesthetic. It's achieved by the English carver's micro-sandblasting technique, also seen on his Weathered Bone finish, but while the Weathered Bone stops at micro-sandblasting, the Moon Rock goes a step further, adding cratered imprints of varying sizes across the bowl for an entirely lunar motif. Such a style fits into Chris' creative personal aesthetic — his work often marked by extravagant color palettes, alternative mediums, or striking finishes. The eye-catching Moon Rock finish is showcased across this straight Billiard, making for a contrast of styles between the classic shaping of the pipe itself and the avant-garde finish it wears. In other renditions, Askwith has utilized colorful stains, bur for this piece, he opted for natural briar and a creamy white polyester stem — the entire palette adding further to the moon-inspired theme.-Truett Smith
