Scott’s Bulldogs & Rhoadies were mighty fine back in his 10/2013 debut and they sold like sunblock at an “Albinos at the Beach” motorcycle rally. I really wasn’t expecting “mighty fine” to show the few micro-adjustments needed to become “HOT DAMN!” so quickly, but darned if he not only did just that, he just keeps accelerating. Here he didn’t just do it, but created a smooth iteration with scads of vibrant straight and flame grain covering the bowl (about a 200/160 split), as well as a bountiful birdseye blanketing the rim and top of the shank. The shape is daring, the edges are superbly defined, and I find that fore-tilt of the bowl positively jaw-dropping. Woof!--R. ‘Bear’ Graves
