Peter Heding: Smooth Long Shanked Bent Egg with Boxwood (Diamond)

Product Number: 002-362-0200

A relatively trim bowl paired to a very long shank that tapers transition-ward from quite a broad mortise end is, I should think, a recipe for disaster. By that I mean it's a sort of composition that would be very easy to get wrong in many different ways. Put more directly, it's a very hard kind of shape to give a natural balance and easy flow. So, no surprise then here, where Peter Heding not only pulled off just such a design perfectly, but happened to do it in just the right piece of briar to produce an exquisite grain-pattern as well. Such a piece that he gave the result his highest grade: Diamond.
