American Estates: Todd Johnson Sandblasted Long Shank Acorn with Bakelite (Hoplite)
Product Number: 004-009-18101
Both on the longer and leaner, as well as the more lithe and streamlined end of Todd Johnson's shaping spectrum, this long shank Acorn exudes elegant gesture and dynamic momentum. It flows through almost eight inches of overall length, with a sleek sense of taper from the shank end to the transition from where sprouts a softly conical bowl crowned by a plateau-kissed rim. From the right flank, a crisp teardrop ridgeline travels the length of the form, gently terminating at the bowl just as easily as it began. It wears a warm, reddish-brown sandblast, the likes of which, though understated, serve to bring out a stellar showcase of rippling growth rings. Todd opted to pair the rich finish with an accent of bright green Bakelite, evoking a sense of antiquity from the vintage material yet not without a modern dose of vivid color.-Truett Smith
