German Estates: Joura Smooth Bent Apple (9) (Made Exclusively for CAO) (Unsmoked)
Product Number: 004-005-4963
It's not often that a carver's work can be so readily recognized by one singular aspect. Typically, it's a combination of aesthetics and overall style. In the case of Karlheinz Joura, though, the way he extends the shank through the heel, accentuating the transition in this bent Apple, makes it easily recognized as the German artisan's work. With prominent cheeking and a voluptuous base, the bowl's ergonomic feel in hand is incredibly pleasing. Said cheeking urges forward, adding length to the shank, and when combined with the graceful bend of the stem, lends the overall profile a dynamic sense of momentum. While all that shaping is indeed impressive, Karlheinz's affinity for grain orientation really shows here as well, the briar displaying lively licks of flame grain bursting up from the bulbous base. It's a gorgeous piece that showcases many of Joura's signature stylistic elements and is presented here in unsmoked condition.- Jeffery Sitts
