American Estates: Nathan Armentrout Sandblasted Billiard with Buddha Belly Bamboo
Product Number: 004-009-15425
Buddha bamboo is a unique varietal, exhibiting a more plump and rounded aesthetic than the typically crisp knuckles of regular bamboo. It's native to Vietnam and the Guangdong province in southern China, and the name's reference to Buddha's belly is noticeably apt, with the plump material here fitted to a Billiard bowl in this Nathan Armentrout piece. The bowl is forward-canted and more voluptuous than the usual pipe chart standard, the American artisan clearly having shaped the bowl to match the bamboo's aesthetic.-Truett Smith
