Though we've seen a fair number of Dublins from Kevin Arthur, he's seldom repeated a specific theme. By example, we've only seen one other Dublin with this towering, trim, Stack-like bowl form, and even that differed considerably as a whole, having used an extra-stout shank as a counterpoint. In this one he keeps things smooth-contoured and trim throughout, making for a light and elegant profile. The finish is noticeably reserved, being a dark walnut contrast, though a good bit of warmth is added to the composition by the turned cocobolo accent.
