Werner Mummert: Smooth Lovat

Product Number: 002-560-0225

Werner Mummert is a carver who enjoys pushing the boundaries of pipe design — from whimsically themed pipes and those that don't even resemble a pipe at first glance, to others with hidden surprises — but he also doesn't shy away from classic shapes. This smooth Lovat is an unexpected example of both the German carver's traditional and more avant-garde aesthetic, offering an unassuming style but with a striking secret. Shape-wise, this piece is rather straightforward and well within the Lovat's conventional characteristics: the shank elongated and the saddle stem abbreviated. The bowl has an Egg-like roundness to it, and Mummert has emphasized its curves through a very crisply defined transition that extends down to the heel. The chamber capacity is immense, making for a palm-filling bowl that displays windswept grain dressed in a natural stain. Such grain is best observed in daylight, but this pipe's true personality comes out only at night. The saddle stem's base features accents of resin and glow-in-the-dark compound, making for an eye-catching surprise when the lights are off.
