Misc. Estates: Sam Cui Smooth Bent Apple (2017)

Product Number: 004-008-5900

An energetically gestural, yet fairly full-bodied bent Apple shape, this piece from Chinese artisan Sam Cui draws 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 very good.
