Michail Kyriazanos: Rusticated Billiard with Bamboo

Product Number: 002-629-0024

While we've handled quite a few elegant shapes from Michail Kyriazanos thus far, this is the first time we've seen him incorporate bamboo into one of his designs. I can't say I'm surprised though. Given his excellence of shape execution and his enthusiasm for alternate mediums like strawberry wood and the like, it seemed it was only a matter of time before he began to try his hand at bamboo. Well, he's done it — and done it with aplomb. In fact, this straight Billiard might just be my favorite from the Greek carver to date. There's just something about its craggy rustication and deep stain that pairs well with the dark hues and pulsating rhythm of the bamboo. The composition, as you might expect, is remarkably organic with just the perfect amount of symmetry and balance. This may be the first bamboo infused number we've seen from Michail, but I have a feeling it won't be the last.
