JT Cooke is famous for his beautiful deep, and very unique sandblasts. He has developed a technique using several separate blasting procedures to bring out and emphasize the unique characteristics of the briar.
No wonder Jim is often referred to as the “Bo Nordh of the Blast.”
He makes his own stems from liquid lucite, which he tints himself and casts into rods. Jim has also developed a special bowl coating process.
This JT Cooke shown above, my second piece, is of a special size and color and only the second one he has made.
It certainly carries significant provenance from the maker.
