Larry Roush: Partially Sandblasted Horn with Silver (S5) (2520)
Product Number: 002-830-0035
A broad bowl is joined to a tapering shank-and-stem combination by a transition that is gradual and soft, as one might expect of the Horn shape. However, when rendered by Larry Roush, expectations are elevated, and this pipe delivers. The rim is smooth with a wide, curved chamfer around the tobacco chamber, making it easy to fill the bowl, and the transition is very high, attaining two-thirds of the height of the bowl. The gently curved taper of the shank and stem reveal a sinuous nature, starting out broad of cross section at the bowl and descending to minimal proportions at the stem, which is abbreviated in length but essential to the overall shape.
A sterling silver accent with diagonal cuts separates shank from stem in bright contrast, the stem revealing variegated patterns of violet, blue, and black in a gentle downturn that gives the piece a natural and organic disposition. The blast is stunning, with undulating waves of deep ring grain circling the bowl and providing easy texture in the palm. Such a broad and dominating bowl should not seem so organically inclined, but it does, thanks to Larry's skills as a designer, his vision for modern shaping, and his remarkable execution of complex craftsmanship.- Chuck Stanion
