Sam Cui: Smooth Tomato
Product Number: 002-687-0016
Sam Cui's work ranges from refined and classic to outright unique. This fellow is somewhere in the middle, being a rounded, perfectly handy take on the Tomato, lent a subtle touch of flare and flourish. There seems to be a bit of Danish inspiration to it, as evidenced by the aforementioned flaring lines, but also in the subtle concavity of the rim, and plump, cheeky flanks of the bowl. Sam's keen eye for grain is well on display as well, as the flame grain pattern showcased here is undeniably choice, highlighted as it is by one of the carver's stunning yet subdued walnut contrasts. I'm quite fond of this briar.
