Werner Mummert: Sandblasted Lovat
Product Number: 002-560-0185
Werner Mummert makes some nice classics, along with his more well-known Art Deco pieces. This streamlined take on the Lovat is one of those, hewing closer to the classic archetype in terms of shaping, though with that standout, impossible-to-overlook sense of Mummert charm. With a bowl that tapers, almost Egg-like, from base to rim, as well as a particularly trim line of shank, and a crisply tucked, practically pinched transition, this is one that shows off some of his precision shaping techniques. More than that, though, is the finish: an extra-deep sandblast that has brought out some dramatic lines of ring grain neatly stacked around the bowl, and dressed in a dark green stain that gives it a prehistoric, reptilian feel. Better still, it's perfectly complemented by his choice of brindled vulcanite stem in shades of vibrant, verdant green. Neat work, and certainly a standout piece.- Rachel DuBose
