Tom Eltang: Sandblasted Bent Egg
Product Number: 002-299-0913
When shaped by Tom Eltang, the Egg shape is easily recognized as the work of the renowned Danish carver. Like his other renditions, this piece boasts a generous amount of forward-urging momentum. Said dynamism starts with the sleek lines of the sinuously bent shank and stem combination — oval of cross section and flaring gradually toward the transition, the streamlined form moves swiftly into the bowl, thrusting the piece's visual weight forward thanks to the shank's pinched nature. At the bowl, then, the active lines continue through the bowl's forward cant while the rim remains horizontal to create a lip effect at the fore. The plump heel and consistent, underlying curve keep the in hand feel natural and comfortable, and the easy transition makes for a handy thumb rest. All dressed in one of Tom's dark stains, accented by a smooth polished, walnut-stained rim, the rugged sandblast is a bit more textured than the typical Danish-style, making this a piece that's sure not to leave your hand for long.-Truett Smith
