Chris Asteriou: Sandblasted Acorn with Bamboo (90/17)
Product Number: 002-540-0080
A rather gnarly and organic take on Chris Asteriou's signature bent Acorn shape, this lovely Freehand number features a broad, softly rounded waistline near the rim which tapers quickly down to a rather sharp heel along the base. The upward-curling transition and four-knuckle stretch of pale bamboo work in perfect rhythm to really complete that natural-esque aesthetic, adding a playful sense of organic dynamism. Fitting to that style, it's finished in a dark, understated sandblast, unveiling an array of rippling rings climbing the bowl's strong taper, eventually erupting into a crown of craggy plateau along the rim. Lovely work!- Andrew Wike
