Steve Liskey: Sandblasted Bent Apple with Horn
Product Number: 002-713-0016
American carver Steve Liskey does surely have a predisposition toward Apple shapes, as well as organic shaping cues, and those evocative of the Danish school. Well, we have a trifecta of those characteristics here, as embodied by this compact, poised bent Apple. The bowl's subtle forward cant lends it a gestural posture in silhouette, while the generous stretch of horn ferrule offers both an aesthetic balance as well as practical accessibility (a brass-reinforced mortise and slightly tapered tenon making for a sure fit, and easy removal of the stem). The low-set transition and upward-thrust bowl lend the composition a Danish-like sense of flow, as well as plenty of surface to showcase beautiful, dark red-stained ring-grain.
