Substantial in size, and with a bias that favors either a right hand hold or the ever-reliable index finger crook, this bowl rocks a painfully beautiful and not-uncertain right to left curl, one that perfectly mimics the shape of a cresting wave, right down to the beginning of a break appearing at the left/top of the rim. Since the element of water is in play, might as well move on to fire — within the striations of the vibrant flame grain. This is where, as a describer, I could really use a pic taken from either the dead front and/or smoker’s vantage: the curl of the grain on the fore and aft perfectly matches form. Another amazing example of Lasse’s art.
