Former Sandblasted Bent Apple

Product Number: 004-001-5788

Hans "Former" Nielsen, is about as close to a 15th century artisan as you can get. And no, I don't mean he's out of step. What I'm referring to is his training--he's had a lot of it. Like all young aspiring painters and sculptors who lived during the Renaissance, artists such as Leonardo da Vinci (who left his home at the startlingly young age of 14 to apprentice with master artist Andrea di Cione), little Hans began his training, you could say, when he was just 15, and then his education continued at W.O Larson and with master of Danish design Jess Chonowitsch--and it shows. This particular piece is spot on classic Danish shaping all the way through. A pedigreed Apple, the pipe displays a rare gift for sandblasting, which defines the most beautifully uniformed rings grain. And because of its precise orientation, the grain compliments the nature of the shape, further accentuating it soft, rounded form. Former's training clearly gave him the know-how to execute this piece, but it was his undeniable talent that birthed its inception and allowed him to so naturally carry it to fruition.
