Tonni Nielsen: Smooth Bent Dublin
Product Number: 002-192-0242
If Tonni has created this shape before, none of your faithful describing hamsters have run across it - but we are sure enjoying it. While featuring an exemplary symmetry, the Acorn-like bowl exudes a sense of softness that I would normally associate with a more organic form. Within the elegant sweep of the bowl and its continuity on the shank, something cool (at least to me) seems to happen; rather than taking on an air of classic implied momentum, I can't shake the image of balloon, stretching in reaction to a strong breeze. Personally, I'd sure like to see a few more compositions along this line.
