Werner Mummert: Sandblasted Optical Illusion Poker
Product Number: 002-560-0186
Out of all of Werner Mummert's conspicuously playful, idiosyncratic forms, this is one of the most unique, to my eye. Indeed, with its wavy, undulating rim and softly paneled shaping about the bowl, it belies its true form, resulting in a seemingly rounded disposition when viewed from any relative distance. And despite its eccentric aesthetics, from a practical standpoint, it's quite faithful to the ethos of the shape chart standard, being a sure-sitting fellow with the shank elevated parallel to the resting surface. Finished in warm, red-orange sandblast, layer after layer of ring-grain has been coaxed to the surface, offering a pleasantly stimulating texture in hand.- Daniel Bumgardner
