Ashton: Brindle Diplomat (XXX)
Product Number: 002-006-3072
The Diplomat is a classic shape, but it's a classic shape that's been somewhat passed over in recent years, compared to its round-shanked sibling, the Author. Jimmy Craig of Ashton, however, has done a great job keeping the shape alive — be it in its saddle-stemmed or tapered variant. Here we see a fine example of the latter, finished in the dark, subtly ruby-stained Pebble Grain sandblast, highlighting a stunning array of undulating growth rings down the bowl.- Andrew Wike
