American Estates: Jared Coles Smooth Acorn (1614) (2016) (Unsmoked)
Product Number: 004-009-12270
Jared Coles simply excels at this more muscular, modern American style of Acorn shape, fusing a Danish sense of smooth line and sweeping curve with a powerful stance and some serious substance overall. The bowl is incredibly plump and poised, with its lifting nature further accentuated by crisp ridgeline of the teardrop shank that effortlessly dissolves into the bowl. It's an interesting juxtaposition where soft shaping and firm lines meet in a way that's complementary rather than clashing, imbuing the composition with some aggressive dynamism. For me though, it's the subtle organic touches that Jared has added to this piece that really ties everything together. Small spots of plateau can be found along the rim, while the shank face is absolutely covered in the craggy texture. Coles has then dressed it a vibrant Bruyere-like contrast stain, showcasing some lively flame grain around the chubby bowl and a sea of birdseye along the underside.- Jeffery Sitts
