Doctor's: Sandblasted Bent Billiard with Bamboo
Product Number: 002-630-0048
Roman Kovalev's skill with bamboo is one that continually impresses us here in the office, particularly his ability to incorporate the material's natural color and more unusual form into a cohesive piece. In this bent Billiard, the rhythm of its five knuckles slows as the eye follows from stem to bowl, terminating in a trim shank and tight-knit transition. The bowl itself seems to spring naturally from these elements, as if grown from the bamboo rather than added to it, with that feeling further evoked by a craggy sandblast that has brought out tightly-stacked growth rings from rim to base.
