Here Smio Satou didn’t continue a slow-as-the-minute-hand-of-a-clock progression. No, he takes a huge leap and executes a hypnotically modernist, low-slung Volcano, and does so without any sacrifice to that ‘Satou-ness’ that has delighted us for so many years (could this bowl have been created by anyone else?). A slanted, katachi-inspired hantsuki (half-moon) mount sets the tone for composition to follow; holding sway through the reduction, and subsequent expansion of the shank, then on to that insanely pretty heel. Maybe it’s just me, but doesn’t this briar seem to flow far beyond what a length of just five and a half inches would indicate? Just a lovely briar.
