Tonni Nielsen: Smooth Volcano

Product Number: 002-192-0233

It's easy to think of the Volcano in terms fundamentally defined shaping that heavily emphasizes status as a sitter - a center of mass shifted as low as possible, a mile-wide underside as flat as the table or desk top it's meant to rest upon, and overall a static approach to line and form. Here Tonni Nielsen tosses all that out the window. And yet, unlike most other Volcano variations that follow a similar iconoclastic route, he's still produced a very fine sitter indeed. Yes, believe it or not, this swooping, gestural Volcano, rounded underside and all, sits, and sits very well. Or, to be more precise, it balances, on a point just inside the rearmost edge of the underside, and does so with such poise that even intentionally prodding at it only produces a bit of wobbling, followed by the briar setting itself right and returning to its deceptively delicate-looking posture.
