Michael Parks: Smooth Bent Apple (VI.14)
Product Number: 002-473-0060
Easy, elegant flow, paired to a whole lot of bowl; that's the first thing that strikes me about this Parks bent Apple. Fully rounded, then elongated to boot, this design presents a considerable amount of briar up front, and yet Michael seems to have had no difficulty in pairing that to a (relatively) slender shank and stem, and lines that simply glide from leading curve to the end of the bit, with just the right amount of muscle hinted at in the transition. It is, simply, a beautiful, clean shape, at once both voluptuous and minimalist, and executed with great skill.
