Askwith: Sandblasted Morta Rhodesian
Product Number: 002-499-0328
Few other carvers work as often with Morta as Chris Askwith does. Consequently, he boasts some of the most impressive designs available in the alternative medium, his creative and whimsical style always inherent in each piece. Here we have a tall-bowled Rhodesian rendered from the dense material. Though the shank and stem are both sleek and streamlined, the bowl boasts a size and grandeur that fits substantially in hand and houses a generous chamber therein. Uniquely, Chris has carved the shape's definitive ridgeline quite low on the bowl, positioning it just above the transition and creating a conical taper towards the rim. The whole piece has been encased in a wavy sandblast and paired to a polyester stem of rust red and amber tones, a touch that bespeaks Askwith's modernist color conventions.-Truett Smith
