Ray Kurusu: Smooth Acorn

Product Number: 002-637-0008

In Reiichi Kurusu's debut on this site, he presented an elongated bent Acorn which pleasantly banged my imagination to the point that the inside of my head must have resembled a Jean-Michel Basquiat mural (please see gallery). Here we get to evaluate a second Kurusu interpretation of a bent Acorn and, generosity of briar aside, it's hard to imagine a more different outcome.

Draping an almost Streamline Moderne silhouette, twin bursts of behemoth birdseye on the port and starboard radiate coronas of crosscut across the front and back of the bowl. This pattern continues all the way down an impressively long shank, finishing with a delicate ring of brass just behind the push-style saddle bit.
