Tonni Nielsen: Smooth Dipper with Plateau and Whale Bone Ring
Product Number: 002-192-0236
In profile this Tonni Nielsen "Dipper" appears much like a hybrid of bent Acorn and Pickaxe, and, well, I would say that is the simplest way to describe it. There is more to it than that, of course. For example, it displays Tonni's penchant for using forward-facing planes or panels to emphasize some particular feature of the briar - a craggy valley of plateau, in this case, bordered by swirling birdseye. When it comes to the accent, again we see a Tonni signature: his taste for unusual materials (or unusual combinations of materials), with the base of this briar's stem being made up from a layer of horn and a layer of whale bone, shaped and fitted together perfectly.
