Geiger: Smooth Speared Fish with Bamboo and Boxwood Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-564-0028
While their range of Danish-informed classics and neo-classics are all quite impressive, Sara Mossberg and Love Geiger of Geiger Pipes can certainly execute a stunning, more evocative freehand piece when the fancy strikes. This Speared Fish is a fine example of that more complex style, indeed calling to mind its namesake in its long five-knuckle stretch of bamboo seemingly piercing the bowl around the transition. Even the bowl itself alludes to the aquatic prey, its triangular form curling against the pressure of the bamboo spear, bowing and writhing in an attempt to break free. It's an impressive feat of shaping, but quite a functional one too. The arrowhead-like vulcanite tip of the bamboo extension, for example, is actually removable, allowing this complex, sculptural piece to serve as a modern Cavalier of sorts. What's more the tip's flattened underside, as well as the arcing panel along the base of the trailing fin-like shank, allows it to sit quite steadily on a desk or table as well. Top it all off with beautiful and well-oriented grain, and this just isn't a piece to miss from the Swedish duo.
