Abe Herbaugh: Smooth Bent Apple with Maple

Product Number: 002-614-0017

While we have yet to present an Acorn from Abe Herbaugh, this bent Apple comes mighty close – like about an extra 1.5mm of under travel to the shank close. Abe cites the new wave American shaping aesthetic as his principle carving inspiration (a Rad Davis briar was his first jump into the realm of major carvers), and this assiduous Apple could be an exemplar for the domestic movement. There is definite grace within the arc of the shank and fine regularity of taper to the same, as it makes its travel from the maple ring at the mount to the bowl, and I find it dauntingly hard to take my eyes off the latter. Grace, however, doesn't preclude an underlying sense of strength and intent – there is nothing frail or delicate here – just one very handsome neoclassic.
