Lasse Skovgaard: Smooth Freehand with Maple Burl

Product Number: 002-327-0503

There is an old Japanese saying, "Art is the illusion of spontaneity" and, on a near daily basis, I have the delight of seeing that wry maxim in play in the work of talented carvers. I wish I had a dollar for every time that I saw someone pick up a pipe and say "Wow... completely spontaneous — this pipe must have all but carved itself!!”, that pipe maker just did a great job. Beyond creating the illusion of spontaneity, making the impossible seem effortless is often simply a part of the working day for master of most any trade. Be it an incredible aria, the perfect 6-4-3 double play, or the creation of an amazing pipe.

Substantial in size, and with a bias that favors either a right hand hold or the ever-reliable index finger crook, this bowl rocks a painfully beautiful and not-uncertain right to left curl, one that perfectly mimics the shape of a cresting wave, right down to the beginning of a break appearing at the left/top of the rim. Since the element of water is in play, might as well move on to fire — within the striations of the vibrant flame grain. This is where, as a describer, I could really use a pic taken from either the dead front and/or smoker’s vantage: the curl of the grain on the fore and aft perfectly matches form. Another amazing example of Lasse’s art.
