Danish Estates: Kurt Balleby Smooth Bent Apple with Bamboo (5)
Product Number: 004-001-5651
While a rather "forward" bowl design isn't an unusual feature in Kurt Balleby's style, this bent Apple does sport an emphasis on the the broad swell of the heel that's even bolder than most I've seen by this artisan. This makes for an interesting match with the rest of the design, which is overall quite light and elegant. And yet, he pulls it all together beautifully, the flow and gesture of stem, bamboo, shank, and transition leading naturally into and through the curvy little bowl, backing up and balancing out every bit of the extra substance that juts out front.
