Smooth Volcano

Product Number: 002-142-0333

The last time that I had the pleasure of describing one of Satou’s Volcanoes, I mused on the master’s “shaping cycle” of non-bamboo Krakatoas, as I have observed it over the years. They continue their aesthetic travel, relatively compact and vertically oriented, then lowering their profile and stretching to a certain point, before returning to something more evocative of the earlier forms, but with every new start of the cycle, the “return shape” will carry a few souvenir elements from the walk-about. The last Volcano, one that seemed to be the last movement before a return, wasn’t a slow-as-the-minute-hand-of-a-clock progression, it was an enormous leap to a hypnotically modernist, low-slung Volcano. As I was describing that specific briar, off in the corner of my screen I had a preview side panel of incoming Satous displayed, and one was a “return” Volcano; a more compact form which represented an even bigger leap on the reverse side of the aesthetic spectrum than the Volcano I was describing. And here it is.

With a length of 5.19”, a height of 1.44”, and a base diameter of 2.01”, this is the most compact Satou Volcano we have offered. Soft and harmonious, this form beckons the eye to consider the composition as a whole. It is only after such consideration that the wonderfully subtle, perfectly wrought elements begin to emerge. Watching this (OK, I’ll say it) adorable Satou rock happily on my desk, to my tastes this is the finest Volcano shape that I have seen Satou-san – I simply love it.
