Partially Rusticated Elephant's Foot with Padauk Koto and Boxwood

Product Number: 002-633-0010

While hardly the first time we have seen Daniel tackle a Danish esoteric shape (his Blowfish absolutely rock), this is the first Elephant’s Foot we have received from the young phenom, and, just as all of his fans have come to expect, where others “zig”, he “zags”. With the normally stoic, traditional shapes, Mustran makes playful use of proportions, and whimsical extension/compression of lines. Taking on a shape which many feel to be one of the pillars of Danish liquid organicism, he... you guessed it, reinterprets in a manner that exudes a sense of classicism which predates Cesarean Rome.

A broad, numbingly handsome bowl, featuring a bulging front panel, a height of roughly 2.75”, and a ton walnut-burl birdseye, is separated from its rear counterpart by a deep, almost spear-tip groove, and just take a look at picture #3 to see the amazing result. The beautiful scutum is then visually reinforced with a pentagonal pillar of a shank, hypnotically elevated through alternating hues of onyx, tuscan, and light ochre; is there really any other word for the election of paduak, boxwood and koto as accessorizing woods than inspired? Finishing on note of bygone eras, take a look at the price of this singular presentation. “Wow” is right.

--R. 'Bear' Graves
