Peterson's classic '03' shape is both one of Peterson's best selling shapes and, to my eye, one of the finest examples of Peterson's shaping aesthetic. The wide shank tapers slightly into the still wide tapering stem, joined gently to the rounded Apple bowl. Pairing this with the flattened (not literally, just visually from the profile) bottom of the bowl and this shape incorporates so many classic Peterson stylistic elements. It's presented here as part of Peterson's Christmas series, which complements the spirit of the holiday season with a walnut stain and a red-and-green ring inlay.
