Werner Mummert: Sandblasted Bulldog
Product Number: 002-560-0184
A signature Bulldog shape from Werner Mummert, this fellow places the carver's penchant for Cubist shaping on full display, making for a piece that's both streamlined and modernist, while still evoking a sense of playfulness. This is achieved by way of the piece's bold sense of proportion, coupled with its adherence to concise, crisp shaping. Layer after layer of ring-grain climbs all flanks of the tightly-flaring bowl, stained very, very dark, complemented swimmingly by the deep forest-green look of brindled vulcanite at the stem, lending the composition a touch of organic dynamism to boot. And surprisingly, it sits with relative aplomb, courtesy of a flat at the underside.- Daniel Bumgardner
