Smooth Volcano with Cocobolo (130) (2013)

Product Number: 002-568-0009

Grant Baston has done something very different with the Volcano here. Gone is the typical flat bottom, or plateau-covered one, or arched one. No, here he's presented us with a wavering, graceful, organic outer edge, floral in its fineness and delicacy, framing a softly contoured egg-shape. The closest thing to come to mind is the forward face of a Bo Nordh Sphinx, of all things. The handling of the shank is unusual as well, with a similar theme of swell-and-flow tow its flare and line - pretty much the only thing conventional about this shape is the treatment of the upper bowl, which is reminiscent of Japanese artisanal work. Well, that, and Grant's use of beautifully grained briar to complement his design.
