Tonni Nielsen Smooth Ramses with Boxwood (9) (Unsmoked)

Product Number: 004-001-5959

Fathered by the legendary Bo Nordh, while many of the Danish greats have tried their hand in creating a Ramses, and many have succeeded in a spectacular manner (Peter Heding, for example, excels with the Ramses shape), the iconic form remains, arguably, the least often executed Danish esoteric shape. Why? For starters, a Ramses is a stone bear to create, and get *right*. Unless one is simply imitating Bo, a carver has to execute subtle (but distinct from Bo) manners of differentiating/integrating the decidedly different characters of the bowl and shank. If the bowl ‘feels’ too detached from the shank, it starts to take on aspects of the sconce, too integrated and one has a fancy, hanging letter-file. Bowl too high/low… it can only get worse. This interpretation of the Ramses from Tonni asks the eye to take in the composition as a whole, it is one continuous form, not a bowl hung on a wall that happens to have a form of a shank. The arc of the stem adds a fine counterpoise to the delicate undulations of the bowl’s supporting plane. Grade '9', and unsmoked.
