Ardor: Spirale Fantasy Bent Apple
Product Number: 002-004-3014
Ardor is acutely talented when it comes to rendering charming, chubby shapes that are joyous to hold, and this bent Apple certainly fits within those parameters, its s-curve profile fluidly sweeping from stem to rim, the stummel softly inflating from shank to bowl. The softness of this piece is exemplified by its lifted, sweeping heel, its supple curves, and the gentle taper from the waistline to the faintly chamfered rim. The stummel is dressed in the Italian workshop's Spirale finish, with deep trenches running along the shank, and a continuous, appropriate, spiral starting at the underside of the transition and winding around the circumference of the bowl in a single, languid band, terminating just under the rim. Stained a warm mahogany, the smooth surfaces contrast the dark hues of the spiral trenches, both offset by the silver banded stem of fractal textured yellow acrylic, matched by the same brightness in the ring on the shank end.-John McElheny
