Armentrout: Sandblasted Brandy with Spalted Maple
Product Number: 002-558-0032
While I wouldn't go so far as to describe this combination of hues as either dark or brooding, between the matte onyx of the stain and the darker striations found within the spalted maple there is something subdued and contemplative of spirit here.
Between the execution of line, proportionality, and depth of blast, this Armentrout straight Brandy seems right out of a Danish play book and manages to impress, without the slightest hint of shouting or the ostentatious. The dark patterns within the sepia of the spalted maple are more evocative of renaissance (Leonardo? Michelangelo?), than modernism, and almost seem to continue on through the grain on the top and bottom of the oval shank (pic #s 3&4).
