Benni Jorgensen: Sandblasted Bent Dublin
Product Number: 002-331-0341
Similar to his bent Egg and bent Apple renditions, this bent Dublin displays Benni Jorgensen's preference for gestural, flowing profiles — the shank-and-stem combination exuding a strong degree of sinuosity and graceful curvature. Jorgensen has been carving pipes since 1980 and enjoyed a 20-year career at W.Ø. Larsen, and that experience has developed into a very distinct, recognizable personal aesthetic. The oval shank and defined transition are also oft-seen conventions of the Danish artisan, the hard merging of the bowl's aft line and the shank juxtaposed against the smooth-flowing curve of the heel as it informs the fore of the bowl. In other bent Dublin renditions, Benni has shaped the rim concavely, but in this piece, he opts for a more convex style — the sides of the rim draping over the flanks, so to speak. It's all dressed in a ruddy, contrast-stained sandblast for a consistent palette and choice grain orientation.-Truett Smith
