Smooth Tomato

Product Number: 002-327-0501

Over the course of our decade long and 500(+) pipes relationship with Lasse Skovgaard Jorgensen, we have seen two Tomatoes from his workshop. The first arrived late last year, a smooth and elegant bent which could have been a poster-child for the Danish manner of approaching the shape. Seven months later, this beauty - in many ways reminiscent of the work of Toku-san, pops up in my describing tray. So, what to make of such fascinating aesthetic change up within a short span? Given that both briars were/are stunning, I think "Mightily impressed" comes pretty close to covering it.

More like an homage to a couple of the shapes which appeared in Tokutomi's US launch - but with a greater nod towards Danish neoclassical sensibilities, Lasse creates hints of the organic, not through asymmetry, but through use of liquid-like transitions and the juxtaposition of two ovoid shapes of opposite orientation (bowl = fore-to-aft, mount = port-to-starboard). The fascination accelerates (literally) from the profile. To my eye, this transonic Tomato seems to be approaching a speed sufficient to leave its very birdseye in its wake.
