Michail Kyriazanos has undoubtedly displayed a deft hand for English classics, though with all of the curiously un-English shapes like this superb bent Acorn coming our way from the Greek carver, he's been consistently showcasing that same skill with forms that fall a little more in line with Danish-inspired shapes of the American school. The proportions are neatly distributed between high-set, poised Acorn bowl and elongated, flared, and lifting shank and down-turned stem, while the pale boxwood accent lends the composition a touch of contrast. And as Michail has already proven his abilities in terms of briar selection, engineering, and traditional design, what's one more skill to add to the list anyway?
