Micah Redmond: Sandblasted Long Shank Tomato with Ivorite Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-774-0035
One of Micah Redmond's long-shanked Tomato offerings, this piece is an interpretation of the American carver's own signature Tomato design, the typically compact concept lent some considerable length thanks to the elongated form out back. The bowl remains as squat and bulbous as his other iterations, though, defined by a bulbous aesthetic yet imbued with a strong degree of forward momentum initiated by the subtly bent stem and continued through the flowing shank, easy transition, and forward-inclined line at the bowl's aft. In this particular rendition, Micah has afforded a touch more heft to the shank, the added muscularity slightly downplaying the bowl's robustness and contrasting against the silhouette's fluidity. Lastly, it's all dressed in a glossy, black sandblast for an intriguing texture in hand and accented with a trim ring of creamy, white ivorite and warm-hued cumberland stem, the domed base of which echoes the rounded plumpness of the bowl's heel. It's yet another stunning addition to Micah's portfolio and further proof of the carver's creativity as he continues to produce unique versions of his own shapes.-Truett Smith
