American Estates: Adam Davidson Smooth Almond (2012)
Product Number: 004-009-11277
The Almond is a shape that brings to mind its namesake, with a jaunty, crisp line to its heel, a teardrop line at the fore, and just the right amount of taper in profile. With a concave rim and an abbreviated shank, it's also quite forward thrust, the slip of saddle stem giving it some pleasant visual balance. It's not a shape we see frequently from Adam Davidson, but one that offers up some unique, hand-pleasing details, as well as a whole lot of space on which to display grain — and there's a whole lot of it in this example, flaring perfectly from the heel.- Rachel DuBose
