Smooth Acorn (H)

Product Number: 002-623-4432

The acorn shape and the crown jewel of Tsuge's production have shared a long and happy history together. Indeed, I can't recall a time when the Ikebana didn't boast a superb acorn as part of its repertoire. This comfort and familiarity even used to extend as far as an amazing consistency of approach to the shape. This jaw-dropping ‘H’(!) Grade Acorn, while still defiantly Ikebana, features a thicker shank than the overwhelming majority of its predecessors, and forgoes the more familiar push-stem in favor of this graceful saddle; something Ikebana never does with a smooth acorn, unless a bamboo ferrule is involved. To my way of looking at things, these changes, while hardly earth-shattering, imbue this Tsuge mainstay with more of a sense of Danish neoclassicism; an element of the Ikebana aesthetic to be sure, but rarely seen in their Acorns. It would be a crying shame if a bowl this perfect didn’t sport an equally fine grain, and this ‘Flower of the Pipe World” didn’t earn its ‘H’ Grade by peeling potatoes. Sweet!
