Former: Smooth Bent Dublin with Ivorite
Product Number: 002-017-0305
I find Former's shaping style fascinating, in part thanks to the very simple visual trick he is able to play, seemingly with ease. In profile, a piece like this bent Dublin appears quite sleek, almost diminutive, its shank and stem a slip against the bulb-like ride of the rim. In hand, however, a different story is told: a shank as wide as the rim itself, which eschews its delicate appearance, and instead feels incredibly sturdy. When paired to all of the other things that set Former apart — a fetching contrast stain, a wealth of wild grain, a crisp accent of pale ivorite — it sets the stage for a piece that I'm reluctant to put down once it's caught my attention.- Rachel DuBose
