Misc. Estates: Sam Cui Smooth Bent Apple (2017)
Product Number: 004-008-4867
An energetically gestural, yet fairly full-bodied bent Apple shape, this fellow from Chinese artisan Sam Cui seems to draw inspiration from the Danish school, especially in its gently upward-lifting heel and overall sinuous silhouette. It's fantastic how Sam has managed to emphasize the curve-laden flow of the form itself by way of a tight, subtle facet on the shank tapering into the bowl, much in the way of the classic teardrop line. Not to be overlooked is the stunning grain, with a wealth of birdseye at each flank and a lane of cross-grain just down the center. Condition is excellent.- Daniel Bumgardner
