Misc. Estates: Jose Rubio Sandblasted Acorn with Bamboo (Unsmoked)
Product Number: 004-008-4819
A very Cutty-esque Acorn, this piece from Spanish carver Jose Rubio displays an obvious forward cant and pointed heel spur below. Even though the shank consists of three knuckles of creamy yellow bamboo with a reverse tenon connecting the stem, Rubio has actually sandblasted the whole piece, creating crisp striations along the bamboo to match the gorgeous ring grain on the bowl. Seriously, the rippling stacks of grain rising toward the rim are absolutely stunning here, all dressed in a deep ruby, almost purple stain. Unsmoked.-Truett Smith
