Scott Klein: Smooth Blowfish with Bamboo
Product Number: 002-517-0067
Quite a structured, clean-lined take on the Blowfish shape from Scott Klein. A smart asymmetry is utilized in the bowl's shaping, with convex discs arising from the cheeks, defined by crisp ridges which originate, depending on your point of view, from the transition, and ride the circumferences of the cheeks and underside of the bowl before coming to rest at the transition. The framing effect intensifies the lovely patches of birdseye at play on each flank, while also emphasizing smartly oriented cross-grain along the asymmetrical aft-to-fore plane. Three perfectly spaced knuckles of bamboo lay between the the delicate transition and a gently down-turned saddle bit, forming a composition that is simultaneously playful and balanced. This one's a firm sitter, too.
