Becker: Sandblasted Tomato (Three Clubs)
Product Number: 002-007-0715
When one thinks of a Becker Tomato, what is likely to come to mind is either a bent, wasp-waisted piece, or a low-slung, substantial one in a straight arrangement. This Tomato falls into neither of those categories. High-rimmed for the shape, its bowl is not as low-slung or squat as one might expect, but is more bulb-like — though still sporting a well-defined waistline. The pencil-thin shank and stem are easy to recognize as being Becker's work, though when paired to this sort of compact bowl design, they seem more substantial than one might expect. It's been finished in a dark sandblast, crisp and replete with textured grain, and topped with a finely-patterned cumberland mouthpiece, offering a touch of subtle warmth to the composition.- Rachel DuBose
