Askwith: Sandblasted Morta Pot
Product Number: 002-499-0345
Chris Askwith stylistically alters classic shapes through the use of non-traditional materials and vibrant color palettes, crafting striking pieces of functional art and some of the most distinctive designs in modern pipe making. This Pot rendition is a remarkably robust, squat interpretation, featuring a broad, muscular bowl paired to a stout, abbreviated shank and a gradually tapering stem. The stummel was crafted from morta, a material renowned for its flavor-neutral smoking characteristics and the fascinating grain patterns that can be unveiled when it's sandblasted, and Chris has taken full advantage of that here with uniform striations of grain traversing the wide bowl. Contrasting the bowl's dark coloration is the polyester stem's swirling mix of neon yellow and ink hues, exemplifying Askwith's fondness for eye-catching color palettes.- Jeffery Sitts
