Adam Davidson: Sandblasted Billiard with Horn
Product Number: 002-437-0083
Adam's bent Billiard shapes are often stouter affairs, merging Danish lines with a heavy Industrial Design aesthetic — producing bold silhouettes with a lot of forward momentum in profile. His straight configurations, however, are far more classic. Take this sandblasted piece for example. His minimalist approach allows him to focus on making the underlying lines as clean and streamlined as possible, which in turn allows the subtler aspects of the shape to really shine. The bowl, for example, is just a touch broader at the base (per the Danish classic tradition), while the rounded, tapering shank just leads seamlessly into the horn ferrule and trim, elongated saddle stem. The proportions are perfectly balanced, with visual weight distributed evenly throughout the composition. Being a classic, Adam's gone with a fitting finish here: a warm medium walnut with amber-tinge sandblast paired to smooth, creamy horn — a palette not unlike that you'd find in catalogs of years gone by.- Andrew Wike
