Becker: Sandblasted Bent Acorn (Four Clubs)
Product Number: 002-007-0700
Here Federico seems to be playing on a signature Becker theme — namely the iconic Stack/Acorn shape we so readily associate with the brand. Rather than the sheer towering height and gestural bend we've seen in the past, however, this piece offers something a bit more composed and restrained. Federico's shortened the overall height of the bowl, yet kept that quick taper and pronounced heel along the base; he's also kept the bend a bit more modest, a straight stretch of shank and stem followed by just the slightest of downward turns near the bit. Overall it accomplishes the signature shape's recognizable jauntiness in profile, while hewing closer to the classic archetype. Lovely ring grain on this example as well.
