Hiroyuki Tokutomi Smooth Apple with Bamboo and Mastado Ivory (2013) (Unsmoked)

Product Number: 004-007-0500

Hiroyuki Tokutomi does some pretty wild designs. He also does some very quiet ones as well. This little bamboo-shanked Acorn is one of the latter; it offers up a neat, softly contoured little bowl of briar, with only the lightest touch of Tokutomi's signature balanced asymmetry at play, with a bit of shifting the chamber walls' mass. Even when you know to look for it, you may have to close one eye and squint to catch just where the extra substance has been retained, and where it's been pared down, yet even before I could spot what had been done specifically, the effect of this careful hand-tweaking of the design was evident in the simple organic sense of the shape overall.
