Steve Liskey: Sandblasted Squat Tomato with Bamboo
Product Number: 002-713-0006
What is Steve Liskey's favorite shape to make? The Apple. In fact, according to Steve, the "perfect pipe to smoke for me is a small Apple with bamboo." It's not difficult to see why either: it's a shape that readily lends itself to Steve's signature aesthetic: a balance of Japanese asymmetry and naturalism and classic Danish sensibilities. The plump, rounded nature of the bowl just works in perfect contrast with his pulsating bamboo shanks and trim bit-work — making for silhouettes that are both fluid and dynamic. Of course, the same could be said for the Apple's more Pot-like cousin: the Tomato — a form that Liskey has simply knocked out of the park here in this sandblasted rendition.
