Michail Kyriazanos: Smooth Billiard
Product Number: 002-629-0090
There's a certain charm to the traditional straight Billiard; it's a rather utilitarian shape at its most basic, yet that simplicity also affords artisans a great deal of creative liberty when fashioning their own interpretations. Here, for example, by playing with the proportions of the old archetype, Greek artisan Michail Kyriazanos has created a wonderfully petite, pocketable take on the old shape. Its modestly-sized bowl sports a slight taper and a gentle lift to its heel, making for a quite soft, almost Danish appearance. It's been paired to a lithe, abbreviated pencil shank with a slender stem to match, reinforced by a metal tenon. That particularly slim shank design, while keeping the silhouette sleek and refined, lends extra visual weight to the bowl — in turn shifting even more focus to all the impressive straight and flame grain found there. Seriously neat work here.
