Misc. Estates: Gregor Lobnik Smooth Oval Shank Apple

Product Number: 004-008-6021

Though fairly compact by other artisans' standards, this oval-shanked Apple is actually somewhere in the middle of the size spectrum when it comes to Gregor Lobnik's work — slightly shorter than his "long shanked" renditions, yet still longer than his signature chubby nosewarmers. It perfectly exemplifies just how talented Gregor really is at his craft, able to lend each design the same meticulous detail and precision of line, no matter the size. This particular shape might be best described as a hybrid of the Apple and the Lumberman, pairing a plump, softly rounded bowl to a gentle transition that's followed by a proportionally longer, oval shank and abbreviated saddle stem. It makes for a charming silhouette to say the least, and Gregor's grain orientation is, once again, excellent and masterful.
