Smio Satou: Smooth Long Shank Pot
Product Number: 002-142-0410
When it comes to overall proportions, much of Satou's work falls directly into a more compact, tightly knit style, yet occasionally he will push the boundaries, so to speak, and render a certain design with a bit more emphasis on length. This Long Shank Pot is an excellent example of that latter approach, the elongation of the shank working together with the oval, saddle-shaped rim and slight flare near the stem base to realize a striking, modernist, and aerodynamic silhouette in profile. Matching that active shaping, Satou's kept the block's natural grain patterns at the forefront, using the broad, elongated flanks to showcase a stunning display of vivid flame and straight grain — all brought out through one of Smio's gorgeous contrast stains.- Andrew Wike
