Ryan Alden: Sandblasted Lovat
Product Number: 002-777-0006
Compared to the other sandblasted Lovat going up in this batch of Ryan Alden pipes, this example is the more abbreviated and the stouter in style of the two. The actual size of the bowls themselves are quite similar, really, but the shorter shank sort of compresses the overall visual weight of the composition, giving it a chubbier look. Though stained in a similar style of walnut finish, this shorter Lovat also showcases a different aspect of the briar's natural beauty, orienting the burl to highlight the block's lovely cross-cut pattern — with blasted birdseye freckling both flanks and vertical ring grain climbing up the center. Lovely piece!
