Smooth Bent Apple with Bamboo

Product Number: 002-540-0022

Moving from splendidly executed, lean Brit traditional shapes, into a milieu which has tried (and bested) many a western artisan, Chris Asteriou has created a captivating bent Apple which speaks to the very heart of Shinto art sensibilities, and does so without either elongation or an overt sense of delicacy. Though smaller than most any briar I have seen from “The Flowers of the Pipe World” (4.62” x 1.57”), this soft-spoken, unassuming jewel quiets the mind in a manner I find quite similar to Fukuda-san’s work, not exactly faint praise from this hardened nipponophile (an advocate of Japanese thought or culture). The walnut stain features a remarkable depth and serves as the perfect backdrop for the sheets of wind swept grain on the sides. Quite remarkable.
