Misc. Estates: Chris Asteriou Smooth Apple (01) (2014)
Product Number: 004-008-6344
Greek carver Chris Asteriou here presents us with a classic Apple, straight and traditional, with a pronounced forward cant. At barely under five inches in length it's a convenient size for most circumstances, with a rounded bowl possessing a pronounced forward attitude thanks to the firm, forward heel. The shank is cylindrical and the cheeking maintains the roundness of the bowl, while the stem tapers away in a unique, variegated patterning that harmonizes with the stain of the bowl. Grain is always difficult to maintain on an Apple shape, but Chris does a great job of it here, with tendrils of vertical grain rising up the bowl's flanks to the flat rim for a truly classic rendition.- Chuck Stanion
