Misc. Estates: Doctor's Smooth Bent Egg with Stabilized Dinosaur Bone

Product Number: 004-008-6713

Roman Kovalev's lineup is certainly eclectic, with an underlying theme of swift lines and dynamic profiles, and this bent Egg rendition combines that sweeping stance with firm ridgelines. Much like his other forms, the design is centered around that sweeping line down from the shank, curving up across the heel and into the plump, rounded curves of the fore. At the rim, however, it quickly guides the eye in the other direction through the deft use of cant and flare, creating a protruding lip of sorts along the aft. As you might imagine, the end result is an exceedingly dynamic shape, yet one populated by gentle, elegant curves and asymmetry contrasted by Kovalev's often-used sharp, aggressive lines. It's finished in a light-contrast stain, highlighting the 360 degrees of flame covering the bowl, with stabilized dinosaur bone commending the shank end for diverse visual texture.
