Askwith: Sandblasted Rhodesian
Product Number: 002-499-0224
Steeply bent to form a firm, imposing heel, this bent Rhodesian is a rather reserved piece for Chris Askwith. The smooth, seamless transition makes for a gentle shape that resembles a Dublin for the first two-thirds of the bowl. Not until meeting the solitary bead line and the steep taper to rim does the design fully take shape. Chris has dressed it in a subdued sandblast, displaying a variety of straight grain and birdseye as well as a red and brown contrast stain. Paired to an all-black stem, it's a conservative, yet incredibly handsome offering from the English carver.-Truett Smith
