Ernie has created Acorns whose bowls have reduced to a point before, but those bodies never boasted this degree of advanced, supple liquidity, nor an overarching form which could easily be envisioned as a small droplet of water, caught in a light breeze, and entering a frozen state at the starting point of becoming an icicle (best observed on pic #8). The hypnotic reduction of the shank and fine interplay with the droplet, gains additional poignancy by the near-wistful reference to the natural in the mount. The scads of flame grain on the body and the windswept grain on the shank, fairly come ablaze with birdseye on the rim and top of the latter. This bent Acorn truly finds its home in the paw, the curl at the heel is a perfect resting point for the ring finger. Now, if I could just put it back in the tray.
