Kent Rasmussen: Sandblasted Tomato
Product Number: 002-287-0207
Featuring that same arcing line along the underside and fin-like stem base shared by his signature bent Egg design, here Kent Rasmussen applies those iconic shaping cues to a squatter, more rounded bowl form: the Tomato. As you might expect with the shorter bowl, that sweeping gesture is perhaps less pronounced, with that upward-arcing shank and stem serving more as a tail of sorts, seemingly emanating out from the soft curvature of the bowl itself — which, in turn, works to lend the overall profile a strong sense of organic dynamism. Fitting to that organic style, he's kept the overall finish minimalist, forgoing any accents or adornments for a crisp, extra dark sandblast, unveiling an array of beautifully stacked, rippling growth rings undulating across the entire stummel.- Andrew Wike
