American Estates: Adam Davidson Sandblasted Retro Dublin with Horn (2016)
Product Number: 004-009-14989
In something of a throwback to those extra tall, flaring Freehand pieces popular during the '60s and '70s, Adam Davidson has presented us with this: the Retro Dublin. From the broad, asymmetrical, plateau-crowned rim and harder taper down to the bold heel, to its checkmark-like silhouette and meticulously crafted horn mount, everything about this piece is readily evocative of that aforementioned era — albeit with a bit of Adam's own stylistic flare as well. Aside from the overall aesthetics, the shaping at play here also allowed Adam to showcase this block's particularly tight ring grain pattern, with a defined, amber-tan sandblast sending dense ripples of grain climbing up along the bowl's strong flare.- Andrew Wike
