This is an out-and-out stout fireplug of a Pot, as no doubt is already pretty clear. And yet, for all that great deal of substance Alexander has packed into such a brief space, nothing about this shape seems the slightest bit weighed down by it. It isn't buoyant, yet neither is it static; it strikes just the right sweet spot in between, remaining firm, yet also remaining ready and active. And of course, while it's doing all that, it also happens to be packing some serious ring grain.
