Misc. Estates: Grechukhin Smooth Oval Shank Pot (Collaboration with J. Alan) (2016)
Product Number: 004-008-6101
Calling to mind both Vladimir's lower, sleeker straight renditions as well as Jeff's more Danish-style Pot shapes, this oval shank Pot is a bit softer of line than those more traditional S. Bang and Jess Chonowitsch renditions. This is perhaps a more Russian method of executing the shape chart standard, with an emphasis on muscular, yet streamlined shaping rather than a low-sitting visual weight and well-defined plumpness. The feel in hand is still quite substantial though, with perhaps a bit of proportional mass lent to the lightly forward-canted bowl in profile. Tight licks of contrast-stained flame grain and ultra-sharp birdseye are accentuated by a warm contrast, paired to an arrow-straight, jet-black saddle stem.-Truett Smith
