Smooth Bent Egg (L)

Product Number: 002-623-4452

No, there's no typo. This is, in fact, an "L" grade from Tsuge's Ikebana workshop. Have we seen one before? Well, no. Would we like to see another? Most definitely. With its entire underside completely covered in whirling birdseye patterns and either flank engulfed in tight windswept flame, this is a pipe one could just spend hours marveling over.

Meant to instill moments of silence and contemplation in a world full of distractions and constant routine, Ikebana is Japan's highest form of floral arrangement. If there were ever a work of art that exemplified Tsuge's interpretation of the art form, it would certainly be this bent Egg. Its forward-canted bowl and sweeping transition lend the number a delightfully dynamic profile. Furthermore, a flattened panel spans from the rim, down the front of the bowl, all the way to the shank end, allowing it to sit perfectly balanced on a flat surface — thus providing the opportunity to appreciate its beauty even when resting. The symmetry to the form further highlights the Japanese tradition, a harmonious combination of sharp ridges and elegant curves. Whether held in the hand, clenched in the jaw, or nestled delightfully on your desk or display, it's a work of art that simply cannot be matched or duplicated. A one of a kind masterpiece of tradition, innovation, and zen.
