Clark Layton: Sandblasted Rhodesian
Product Number: 002-781-0013
Like the American school at large, Clark Layton describes his shaping influence as "this and that." Though an oversimplification for the more-than-casual pipe enthusiast, this Rhodesian does make for a fine example of the practical, understated approach. Indeed, it makes use of a fairly muscular, somewhat Danish-inclined form, its poised bowl serving to guide the composition in profile. A tight beadline wraps its way around the bowl's equator, framing a domed rim packed with blasted birdseye, and bolstered by a remarkably craggy display of undulating ring grain on all flanks, coaxed by a warm, stimulating sandblast.- Daniel Bumgardner
