In a (perhaps overly) broad sense, Peter makes two different kinds of Egg; both always display a fine shaping acumen, style and charm, are ‘cheeky monkeys’ and show a wider front than profile. The ‘standard’ version is the more Rubenesque of the two and plays a bit more towards the Egg template. The other trades some of its spherical element in order to take on a lither, almost serpentine anima. Yep, this is the second.
Svelte in profile, with a deliciously subtle, sinuous arc that runs from the bit to the transition of the shank onto the bowl, the latter almost seems to be raising its head, as if trying sense what is about; an impression that isn’t hurt a bit by the flattened, asp-like execution of the same. The sandblast is as delicate as spring rain, and coaxes out a damask-like cross/straight grain on the sides and birdseye on the front and back.
