Werner Mummert: Sandblasted Bulldog Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 002-560-0342

Combining minimalist lines with modernist, geometric styling, Werner Mummert here offers a remarkable Bulldog, its double beadlines circling along the outside perimeter of the rim, which is domed, but flatly so; that is, it rises like a dome but the surface of that dome is flat. Every line is crisp; beyond crisp, really, especially at the top of the shank, which offers a ridgeline that can only be described as razor sharp. A lower ridgeline at the underside of the shank is likewise sharp, but at a more shallow angle which tends to direct the eye toward the topmost ridge.

The mouthpiece offers a dramatic taper, in more of a half-saddle configuration than otherwise, with a deep curve along the top and a more modest treatment underneath. The shank and mouthpiece are taller than they are wide, with a cross section like that of an inverted kite, its longest, sharpest section along the top. The ridgeline under the shank extends beyond the heel for a forward-inclined disposition, informed by the sharp angle of the forward heel.

From above and below, we see the little curvature that Mummert permits in this design, with a round bowl broadly perched atop the geometrical shank and heel, necessitating the low, curved ridgeline that extends along the sides of the shank. It's all unified by a stunning tanblast which unveils dense, highly textural ripples of ring grain around the bowl and through the shank, its hues lent a bit of contrast thanks to the purple brindling on the vulcanite stem. If a pipe maker can be said to achieve success when his or her style is easily recognizable, then Werner Mummert arrived long ago.
