Pete Prevost: Smooth Acorn
Product Number: 002-532-0051
A soft-lined, compact, and supple Acorn, this piece exemplifies Pete Prevost's Danish-leaning shaping style. The form is defined by the underside's consistent arch, curling under the transition and up the bowl's fore into the rounded rim. This trajectory, then, is perfectly matched by the topside's curve, albeit interrupted by the gentle, slightly tucked transition. Both the top and bottom lines, combined with the easy gesture of the transition make for a stunning lesson in negative space — the area surrounding the silhouette drawing almost as much attention as the form itself and the domed stem base echoing the plump upper bowl in profile. It's all made possible by Pete's dedication to keeping things simple in this piece, adhering to a minimalist aesthetic and maintaining the focus on the shape and grain. Beautifully oriented strands of straight grain circumscribe the bowl, highlighted in a natural contrast stain. In keeping with the minimalist Danish style, Prevost has avoided the use of adorning accents, opting instead for a simple and subtle dot of plateau on the bulbous rim that perfectly suits the intended style. Simply gorgeous work from the American artisan.-Truett Smith
