Silver Gray: Sandblasted Acorn Hawkbill Sitter
Product Number: 002-775-0019
For those familiar with the Hawkbill, this Sitter might seem to be an unusual take on the shape. Rather than the Ball-like bowl we might be used to, Silver Gray has here used an Acorn style to truly dramatic effect. With a plump waistline set high on the bowl and a steady taper to base, it draws the eye naturally to the arc of the shank, while also providing a small foot on which the piece sits steadily. Though the shank, at its highest point, does not come even with the rim, it does provide a smooth arc and a dramatic lift, making this a piece that easily stands out. The palette is quite fine as well, with a dark sandblast, replete with concentric growth rings, paired to a brindled vulcanite stem in black and tan.- Rachel DuBose
