Askwith: Sandblasted Morta Bent Billiard
Product Number: 002-499-0358
The bent Billiard isn't a shape we've often seen from Chris Askwith; our archives show two of them coming through our office in the past six years, so this (slightly) bent piece is certainly a welcome inclusion. Reflecting the artisan's penchant for alternative materials, this dark, sandblasted morta pipe reveals the myriad grain patterns unique to the medium. Shape-wise, the robust bowl displays a slightly asymmetrical rim for a touch of whimsy to the otherwise classic shaping, and the shank and stem stretch out for a seamless, lengthy profile. One of Askwith's colorful polyester mouthpieces livens the color palette with its intermingling hues of lime green and black on this fetching, lively piece.-Angela Robertson
