Benni Jorgensen: Smooth Bent Apple with Wood (Swan) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-331-0328
Though less common than his more streamlined, flat-shanked forms, Benni Jorgensen's more muscular approach to round-bowled numbers is always marvelously handled. This bent Apple combines a forward-inclined, overtly rounded bowl with a rearward-sweeping, tightly flared shank, guiding the eye to a neat mount of gorgeous wood — which appears to be oak — the likes of which are imbued with a slightly more pronounced sense of flare. It's finished in one of the carver's brilliant contrast stains, highlighting a grain pattern that's nothing short of exquisite, as denoted by the Swan grade designation, Benni's highest. An artful, seriously comforting piece.- Daniel Bumgardner
