Smio Satou: Smooth Volcano with Tsuishu
Product Number: 002-142-0407
The Volcano is a shape that has plenty of room for adaptation and adjustment, but here, Satou has imbued a good bit of his own personal style — specifically, a crisp type of minimalism. From the soft ridge around the base, belying the soft bevel at the bottom of the bowl, to the slight taper and flaring shank, each detail is carefully crafted to give a fluid aesthetic— a stark contrast with some of his more sturdy, architectural designs for this particular shape. What it does extremely well, though, is to offer a canvas on which to display some vibrant flame grain — which here wraps the bowl neatly, all in a warm finish and medium gloss.- Rachel DuBose
