Werner Mummert: Sandblasted Reverse Calabash with Tagua Nut

Product Number: 002-560-0044

"Clown hat", I'll admit, was the first thing to come to mind after this Werner Mummert arrived. Specifically as in, "That reverse-Calabash is wearing some manner of polka-dotted clown hat. What a nut." Well, as it turns out, it is, literally, a nut. The tagua nut, specifically, from a tree that's also known as ivory palm. And as that name implies, this particular material has become a popular, natural substitute for ivory, now being used in everything from precious-metal jewelry to bagpipes. Here it makes for very distinct accent to what is, easily, one of the most distinctive of modern shapes.
