With a graceful elongation that seems at complete loggerheads with a length of just five and a half inches - using a bent Apple as an initial platform, and then adding a multitude of individual, even subtly iconoclastic touches - Weaver has created an interpretation that simultaneously appeals to many traditional sensibilities, while offering the collector something intriguingly different.
The arc and expansion of the shank, along with the shape of the stem and execution of the mount, speaks to me of the precision and aesthetic of a Kent Rasmussen, right down to the exact width of the black ebonite bands which flank the beautiful inlay of box elder. Eschewing cheeking, which would have certainly lessened the hypnotic form to follow, Weaver opposes the classic ‘Apple’ rounding of the upper rear of the bowl with a deftly handled reduction, followed by a fore-curl on the front. The result changes what would have been something a bit more ordinary, into a thought provoking shape with hints of an oil lamp from antiquity.
