Clark Layton: Partially Sandblasted Volcano
Product Number: 002-781-0005
Another of the more organic numbers from this premiere batch of Clark Layton pipes, this Volcano shape looks to evoke the approach of Eltang's Eskimo in its wide shank and squat bowl form, while the underside's curve and lively sense of line call to mind those more modernist Surfing Volcanoes of the American school. Fitting with that naturalistic aesthetic, Clark's finished this one in a deep sandblast, accentuating a display of stacked ring-grain climbing up the bowl, and dressed in a warm, smokey contrast. The underside and the ridges on each flank of the shank are finished smooth, with nothing but big, bold whorls of birdseye below. A stem of warm olive brindled vulcanite seems like a more than suitable match too.
