Jared Coles: Partially Sandblasted Horn (1911)
Product Number: 002-738-0052
This is a take on a Horn design we previously saw from Jared Coles in 2018. It's a form defined by silhouette, with the sweeping, flaring lines beckoning attention and making for irresistible eye candy. At its core, this piece from the American carver is rooted in the classic Danish shape — the shank curling gradually into the bowl, its consistent flare continuing all the way to the rim for a piece that's highly dynamic and virtually devoid of noticeable transition. Coles draws added focus to this forward momentum by keeping the stem raised upward and subtle of downward turn. Unlike the past rendition, though — which featured a broad, softly domed rim — this one's, while slightly inflated, is concave, dipping inward for a floral aesthetic. Jared has further drawn focus to it by staining it in a smooth, mahogany finish, shining starkly against the darker, earthy red sandblast of the rest of the stummel. As I mentioned before, though, this is a piece defined by silhouette, and nowhere is the eye more pleased than in the piece's topside line: Starting at the rim, it curls beautifully through the shank and continues into the disc-like portion of the saddle stem. Jared was clearly intentional in this shaping, expertly incorporating the mouthpiece into the overall composition and accentuating the negative space just above the shank and behind the bowl.-Truett Smith
