Benni Jorgensen once worked alongside Teddy Knudsen at W.O. Larsen, and a common element you'll see both developed (and which is also shared by Benni's son, Lasse Skovgaard, and G. Batson, a student of Knudesn's) is the use of crisply-defined, but smoothly sweeping and stylistically organic edges. Though there's only one found on this bent Apple design, as opposed to the more typical pairing of two, it has no trouble adding a strong and distinctive definition and individuality to the design, as it glides gently down from the shank, rolls through the transition and lower bowl, then slashes gracefully upward to the rim. And aside from adding that extra definition overall, it also serves as harmonious way of "framing" the bowl, bringing the attention all the more readily to the the briar's excellent ring grain.
