Nate King: Smooth Bent Tomato (384)
Product Number: 002-579-0086
With a rounded bulb of a bowl and curving shank and stem, this little briar from Nate King is an elegant, slightly gestural take on the Tomato shape. Nate's paid careful attention to the cheeking around the transition, producing broad, bulbous flanks to further emphasize the piece's overall squat, plump style. There's a bit of outstretched gesture to the S-curve as well, creating a sense of graceful, implied momentum while also balancing the visual weight of its plump bowl. Not quite of nosewarmer proportions, it's still a modestly sized piece, perfect for on-the-go, and sporting a similarly modest chamber. For fans of birdseye, there's a great deal on display across both flanks, with just a touch of cross-grain along the bowl's fore. A neat and well-executed piece for sure.
