Castello: Old Antiquari Cherrywood (GL)
Product Number: 002-386-1285
I couldn't tell you how many sitter shapes I've seen that didn't actually sit. I can however tell you that this Castello is not one of them, despite the precarious appearance of its height, proportions, and posture. Sure enough, despite being one of the most daring Castello Cherrywood shapes I've come across, this one rests on its foot confidently - pound on my desk as I might, it refuses to even teeter. It's an interesting shape beyond that, with the long, lean, concave taper and very forward posture of the bowl playing a contrast to the deep anchor of the transition and muscular style of the shank, trailed in turn by a light and graceful stem. Oh, and ring grain? You'll find it stacked just neatly, right from top to bottom. (An interesting contrast I'd say, to the wild shape which bears it.)
