Kent Rasmussen: Smooth Volcano with Masur Birch
Product Number: 002-287-0212
Sleek and forward-ebbing in profile, this Volcano from Kent Rasmussen pushes the edges of what we expect from the shape, using softer lines to achieve a sense of organic sturdiness. Where other carvers might use plateau, firm bases, or squarely-proportioned features, Kent uses a long sweep to the underside of the bowl and shank, giving an almost wave-like elegance and allowing the bowl to erupt upwards in a show of straight and flame grain. At the rear, the upward-lifting shank is dappled with birdseye, leading naturally to an accent of finely-grained masur birch in pale hues. It's a stunning and elegant rendition of a classic shape, with Kent's inherent sense of both detail and implied momentum on display.- Rachel DuBose
