Danish Estates: Kurt Balleby Smooth Rhodesian (5)

Product Number: 004-001-5694

The signature Danish-school elements of smooth line and flow, properly applied, can make just about any shape appear effortlessly graceful. And here Kurt Balleby has applied them very properly indeed, turning the Rhodesian, a shape which in its classic English and French renditions leans quite a bit towards solid, sturdy shaping, into something downright gracile and lyrical. Just as significantly, he's done all that without having to pare the bowl down one iota to create such a light and elegant aesthetic, the result being that this beautifully grained briar still offers both a respectable amount of chamber, and plenty of reassuring thickness in the surrounding walls.
