Werner Mummert: Sandblasted Hawkbill
Product Number: 002-560-0232
A relatively conservative approach form someone who pushes boundaries with such frequency and acclaim, this Hawkbill from Werner Mummert displays remarkable ring grain in a deep, tactile blast that will keep your finger pads as well as your eyes occupied. It's in its natural, briar coloration, allowing this piece to darken with character as it's smoked over time. The famous drooping shank of the Hawkbill shape is more conservatively employed in this example, with the transition maintaining the bowl's shape and prompting soft cheeking near the heel. The shank meets the heel in triangular relief and has been compressed to lens-like cross section with crisp ridgelines riding the flanks. The saddle mouthpiece, which maintains the lower curvature of the shank in profile, caters to Mummert's penchant for colorful palettes, having been fashioned from lavender-hued vulcanite for handsome contrast against the bowl. It's a striking piece that balances classic shaping with Werner's more innovative finishing and palette style, with one of the most consistent and beautiful sandblasts I've been privileged to see.- Chuck Stanion
