Tom Eltang Smooth Oom Paul (Snail) (2002)

Product Number: 004-001-6608

"Wow!" is right. Prior to opening this update's batch of Danish estates, I would have bet the pink slip on my bike against one of your used pipe cleaners that Tom Eltang had never made an Oom-Paul, much less one which was a (frankly) staggering Snail grade. Yeah, I would have been walking to and from work, but the experience of seeing this marvel in person would have almost been worth it.

If there ever was a neoclassical interpretation which elevated a traditional form from simple/functional to a true example of three-dimensional art - this might well be it. The bowl features a (base) Egg shape which has been compressed to such an extent that aspects of a Shield begin to come into play. In turn, the side-to-side hoplon of the bowl is visually reinforced by the bold, front-to-back emphasis of the shank. Take a peek at how the angle of the half-saddle mirrors the rim of the bowl - while still maintaining a perfect complement of flow with the remainder of the stem. I want this one-of-a-kind Eltang Snail grade to such an extent, I'm half tempted to sell a kidney in order to obtain it. That speaks volumes (I usually try to sell one of Andrew's).
