Misc. Estates: Sergei Cherepanov Sandblasted Apple with Bamboo

Product Number: 004-008-1886

We've seen quite a few interesting designs from Sergei Cherepanov; a classic Lovat, an extra-slender Belge that was the spitting image of a delicate clay shape of old, even an Ilsted-style bent Bulldog. He also does a lot of purely original design-work too, and does it very well as a rule. In this case what we have is a simpler and well-established form, but one he's made all his own through another signature: his distinctive and novel work with details and accents. One knuckle of bamboo? A lot of Danish artisans would likely scoff at the very idea, but here Sergei gave it a try, and much to my surprise, it actually looks right. There's also the stem design to consider, a very fine, delicate bit of shaping there, which in turn is contrasted by his living just a "chip" of natural plateau breaking the lines and surface of the polished rim.
