Werner Mummert: Smooth Reverse Calabash Foursquare

Product Number: 002-203-0007

..Werner's aesthetic runs the gamut from neat takes on classic shapes to truly innovative and even eccentric designs. Here, we find an example of the latter. The traditional Four Square is among the simplest of pipe designs. A square bowl is paired with a square shank to produce a functional, if rather unimaginative design. Werner's talent lies in being able to preserve those essential features while re-imagining everything else in between in this unique take on the shape.

The bowl and briar portion of the shank demonstrate Werner's sense of playful exaggeration. What were squares in the classic shape become formidable blocks in Werner's interpretation. The two are joined by a tempered glass tube shank that is not only visually striking, but an easy-to-clean condensation chamber. The two springs along each side of the shank lends the pipe what I'm tempted to call a 'gear punk' aesthetic.

Innovative, functional, and imaginative, this is a seriously fun piece from Werner Mummert.
