Danish Estates: Kent Rasmussen Smooth Bent Apple with Mazur Birch (Two Star)
Product Number: 004-001-5838
This is a Kent Rasmussen. And if you're familiar with Kent Rasmussen's work, you won't be finding any real surprises here. Elegant lines, clean, easy forms, perfect fit and finish, and bucket-loads of gorgeous grain; they're all here, just as expected. The simple matter is, the man's one of the most respected artisans alive today for a reason - or more to the point, a fine combination of them. Well, okay, I suppose there is one
surprise, namely that this smooth, curvy design is actually quite a good sitter, balancing gracefully at a backward cant, on a point just below the transition.
