Kent Rasmussen: Smooth Bent Dublin with Plateau Silver and Masur Birch (3 Star)

Product Number: 002-287-0168

Broad and sweeping, rolling planes play a strong roll in this Kent Rasmussen, one in which panels are used not to create a staid effect, but a dramatic one. Like the rolling and crashing of a heavy sea, the cross grain of the briar raises and crests fore and aft, while the somewhat quieter flanks seem to froth like foam with birdseye. The grand proportions of the bowl, of course, are part and parcel of this effect, something which itself brings to attention how Kent balanced out this design not with mass or length to the shank (and certainly not the former in the stem), but through motion, arrangement, and design.
