J. Alan: Smooth Nautical Bent Dublin with Boxwood (972)

Product Number: 002-376-0164

Inspired by his home of San Diego, as well as a love of sailing which was inculcated in his youth, the nautical Dublin is a shape that Jeff has made for some years - I believe that I had the pleasure of describing my first back in mid 2008. While the shape has been refined since I first encountered it (Gracik, both the man and the carver, has never exactly been a poster-child for the attributes of entropy), some elements haven't changed (and I pray, never will).

The overarching profile still proudly displays the same sweeping lines that are found, in the words of Jeff, "in the silhouette of a fine sailing vessel. or the bow of a schooner, as it cuts through waves and swells". With the front of the bowl leaning out like the prow of a ship, the entire composition is imbued with a beautiful sense of forward motion. A single edge, running from the end of the shank on the right side, right to the middle front of the rim, ties the composition together; grounding it, stabilizing it in a marvelous fashion amidst its palpable movement. The grain? The stain? Don't even get me started, just kick back and enjoy the show below. Ok, maybe buy it too, if you find yourself so inclined.
