Wojtek Pastuch: Sandblasted Dublin with Warthog Tusk (0829)
Product Number: 002-811-0021
The Dublin is an old canonical design, one you'll find across classic shape charts spanning generations. That said, Wojtek's still managed to put his own spin on the traditional form here, giving the bowl a bit more height and almost exaggerating the taper down to the heel. He's paired that more stylized bowl form to a proportionally trim shank and stem configuration, making for a rather jaunty and rakish silhouette overall.
As for the finish, Pastuch went with a very dark, almost black stain for most of the briar, coupled with a crisp sandblast that manages to coax out a spectacular display of ring grain without compromising the form's clean, defining lines. A simple band of pale warthog tusk serves as a natural and intuitive accent to the dark palette, giving it just a bit of extra visual interest overall. What a spectacular piece!- Andrew Wike
