Werner Mummert: Sandblasted Reverse Calabash Apple Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-560-0395
Known for his distinctive, highly original designs that push the boundaries of pipe making as a craft, Werner Mummert imbues his raw creativity and elegantly modern sensibility into every pipe, as evidenced by this Apple. The pert, softly rounded bowl showcases some lively cheeking at the transition, reminiscent of the Danish tradition, before giving way to a shank extended by see-through, tempered glass that clearly displays the reverse Calabash engineering inside. This engineering is designed to provide a cooler, drier smoke, as the chamber collects excess moisture.
Topped off by an abbreviated, jet-black saddle stem, this piece maintains a rather sturdy presence in hand, with the glass of the shank possessing a firm durability. A craggy sandblast dresses the stummel and draws out rippling growth rings that resemble overlapping scales, all underneath a bright burnt-orange stain. This is a compact, travel-friendly piece, coming in just a touch over five inches in length. Well-balanced and graceful, this piece offers an eye-catching, experimental design that blends traditional pipe making with a fresh, modern aesthetic.--Davin Hylton
