Armentrout: Sandblasted Zulu

Product Number: 002-558-0028

If my regard of the Zulu shape doesn’t place it on the x/y intercept wherein “x” represents its high relative appeal to me and “y” represents the lowest level of production, I can’t think of another shape which would replace it. (Looks at last sentence, is properly horrified, but moves forward nonetheless.) Believe it or not, this is the first Zulu we have seen from Nathan. My personal shock doesn’t directly tie back to low numbers, again, not a ton of Zulus wind up being made. Still, when an artist can absolutely nail a classic in this manner, I think he should make more of them – he owes it to the hobby. Ok, forget the hobby, this is personal

A bit over six inches long, weighing in at roughly 37 grams, and every modernist millimeter seeming to strain against an unseen lead, between the low-slung, wind-cheating design and vibrant color of the stem, this would be one zipping Zulu to contend with. Then we have the bonus of that superb grain nestled within the subdued hues of the bowl. A yeoman’s job, indeed.

--R. ‘Bear’ Graves
