If I had to define this shape, I'd pin it as a curious amalgamation of Almond and Blowfish. And yet, putting aside its similarities to either, my basic impression of the design is that it looks quite floral in nature. The soft lines to the fore and aft of the bowl, combined with the curving panels which wrap around it and the deep, smooth channel up front just have a certain delicate, organic style to them. This is, of course, all despite the fact that the briar itself is actually quite robust in substance, and plenty capacious as well.
