Danish Estates: Manduela Sandblasted Paneled Pear
Product Number: 004-001-20700
Receiving the majority of her training from the inimitable Poul Ilsted himself, Manduela Riger-Kusk has an astonishing skill with faceted, tightly structured forms, much in the way of her legendary teacher. This Pear, however, presents something a bit different, and particularly Danish in character. The profile reveals a fair bit of visual weight at the easily tapering bowl, balanced neatly by a wide, paneled, shank and sinuously bent stem. Manduela opted for a dark, low-profile sandblast, coaxing out some nice grain on each of the carefully geometric panels on the bowl and good texture without disrupting the shape's neat lines.- Chuck Stanion
