Lomma: Sandblasted Bent Apple
Product Number: 002-596-0122
This bent Apple may be the most reserved and conservative of this batch from Lars Jonsson of Lomma pipes, but it might also be the best example of his penchant for "cheeking". By keeping the transition very well defined and exaggerating the waistline of the bowl, he's allowed the curvature of the bowl to extend past the vertical axis of the transition — which in turn makes for a soft and comfortable feel in hand. This style of shaping also has another benefit: it grants the block's grain pattern (in this case, ring grain) an added sense of depth, seemingly coming off the briar canvas to dance in the palm of your hand.
