Dirk Heinemann: Sandblasted Bent Egg with Antler
Product Number: 002-793-0030
Previous bent Egg renditions from Dirk Heinemann have primarily been plump-bowled or compact in their shaping, but they always manage to feature a sense of implied momentum and liveliness in their execution. This particular rendition may be the most gestural example we've seen thus far from the German artisan, with the bowl urging forward from out of the sweeping shank. Said bowl is curvaceous and supple, displaying a low-set waistline and prioritizing breadth over height. Aesthetically and finish-wise, this piece is undeniably striking and incredibly detailed. Dirk has treated the stummel to a remarkably crisp sandblast, with waves of rippling grain traveling from the bowl's lifted heel up to the neatly chamfered, smooth polished rim. Heinemann has then extended the shank through use of an antler accent, with its pale, creamy color standing out in stark contrast against the stummel's reddish tinged contrast stain. Truly impressive work from the German artisan.- Jeffery Sitts
