Gregor Lobnik: Sandblasted Bent Dublin

Product Number: 002-357-0081

I like this bent Dublin. I like its overt industrial sensibilities. I like that it was crafted by Gregor Lobnik, an artisan who (at least until now) had shown little interest in the oeuvre. Perhaps most of all, I appreciate that Gregor approached this execution from a fresh perspective, which allowed him to create something fresh and individual, not a semi-clone of established work.

While the L-turn of the bowl rising from a short shank is a signature of industrial/pipe/ briar, employing an oval shape in the latter (rather than simply a twin of the bowl, writ small) isn’t, nor is a subtle sense that one is looking at factory artifact from the late 19th century to be found in other interpretations. Back to the first sentence: I like this bent Dublin.
