Ichi Kitahara: Smooth Bent Dublin with Bamboo

Product Number: 002-340-0099

Ichi Kitahara seems to have a thing for waves - he has an entire shape, the "Wave", naturally, dedicated to waviness, and here even the bent Dublin gets a good dose of forward-rushing and undulating flourish, through a swept-back bowl form down below and a counterpointing, gently rolling line defining the rim. It's a lovely bit of shaping, I say, and as luck would have it, the briar cooperated with it just beautifully, and fittingly, producing fans of flame grain along the flanks and a mellow, cloudy freckling of birdseye up top.
