Clark Layton: Smooth Pear
Product Number: 002-781-0046
The Pear is perhaps Clark Layton's most often produced design, yet we rarely have the pleasure of seeing one in a smooth finish. The American carver is known for his fine sandblasts, but does an exemplary job with a smooth rendition here, wrapping the supple form in continually curving lines that offer a liquid profile, a carnival of uninterrupted beauty.
Layton has shaped beautifully according to the grain, perfectly displaying tight striations of cross grain on the flanks and mesmerizing birdseye on the fore and aft aspects. An oxblood and yellow contrast stain makes the grain really pop, and will for years to come, currently looking resplendent under a glossy finish. It's topped by a bespoke brindled mocha vulcanite saddle stem, bent just slightly to promote a comfortable smoking position.- Joel Balyeat
