Misc. Estates: Peter Matzhold Smooth Bent Brandy with Horn (Unsmoked)
Product Number: 004-008-5646
Peter Matzhold often boasts a clean, minimalist aesthetic in his work, primarily fashioning classically shaped pieces that prioritize superlative shaping, finishing, and engineering. This bent Brandy makes for a stunning example of the Austrian artisan's style — the form is steeped in Danish shaping cues, the shank-and-stem combination trim and slender while the plump bowl is soft and voluptuous. There's a strong sense of cheeking around the transition, serving to accentuate the lower bowl's robustness and the flanks' upward taper. Such bowl proportions stand out in contrast to the shank and stem's lithe nature. The grain around the bowl is immaculate, displaying dense birdseye, while the horn accent band offers a pleasing color palette. It's presented here in unsmoked condition.- Jeffery Sitts
