Lasse Skovgaard: Smooth Bent Egg

Product Number: 002-327-0507

Ok, here’s something quite special from one of Denmark’s amazing carving talents, Lasse Skovgaard Jorgensen. Can you believe that when this arrived at my desk it was titled as a Tulip? No, I agree: bent Egg doesn’t exactly capture this composition either, but if I ask Greg in IT to create a SphinxballVortex entry, he’d probably do something evil (and untraceable) to my computer. I will leave the titling to your gentle consideration and simply state that this is one of the most enchanting and mesmerizing compositions I have seen from Lasse.

There are many elements in place here, the removal of any one of which would diminish the presentation considerably, but the ridge that travels a circuitous route, beginning (by implication) in the form of the half-saddle, and then circumnavigating the entirety of the bowl, absolutely elevates this form to the transcendent. In the Lars tradition, this line acts as both vanguard for/guardian of that all-critical interior line which anchors the composition, but that ridge is also crucial in the creation of the subtle paneling, the changing emphasis from vantage to vantage, as well the poignant crest on the fore of the rim. As far as the grain rolls... I find it impervious to criticism of any sort. Perhaps, as you take a stroll through the photos, you might find a weakness I overlooked, but I’m doubtful. Take a quick peak at pic #4, where the twin vortices of angel-hair coalesce into pinpoint birdseye. Oh yeah....
