Becker: Smooth Acorn (Four Hearts)
Product Number: 002-007-0527
It's common to see Paolo Becker combine his signature wasp-waisted style of transition with especially large bowl designs, but in this case he's gone in the other direction entirely. Slim, sharp, and lively, the crisply modern Acorn bowl presented here, when combined with aforementioned ultra-fine transition and flared shank, results in a profile that is both dynamic and delicate. As light as the shaping is, however, the briar still manages to pack plenty of grain into it, with frenetic bands of flame coursing along bowl, shank, and the forward half of the rim, and loads of fine birdseye just about everywhere else.
