Former: Partially Sandblasted Bent Bulldog
Product Number: 002-017-0261
Though it still features that strong, graceful sense of curl along the underside, this bent Bulldog from Hans "Former" Nielsen does sport a taller, more upright style of bowl than his usual fare, which in turn really works to produce a more muscular, tight-knit aesthetic in profile. The result is just a striking and powerful take on the age old shape, showing a perfect balance between smooth, easy Danish lines and plump, hand-filling proportions. Fitting to that dynamic style, it's presented here in a precise and lovely dual finish — the lower bowl, transition, and shank sporting a black, red-undertoned, ring-grain-abundant sandblast with everything above the beadlines dressed in a dark, deep and rich red contrast. Stunning work.
