Tsuge Ikebana: Sandblasted Billiard (Fukuda) (F) (191) (2015)
Product Number: 002-623-4555
While the organic Freehand shapes that we frequently see from Tsuge Ikebana are quite eye-catching, it's these takes on classics that really blow me away. A straight Billiard from Fukuda, this piece pairs precision shaping with just a hint of Danish influence in its lifting heel and streamlined form to a fine, dark finish that makes all of the sandblasted grain really stand out. It's a style that would not be out of place in a collection of classical pieces, nor at a formal function, but feels inviting enough that it's difficult to imagine reaching for anything else.- Rachel DuBose
