Peter Heding: Smooth Nut with Bamboo
Product Number: 002-362-0234
The Nut is a signature shape from Peter Heding, characterized by its rather Acorn like bowl featuring a plump, high-set waistline and a soft taper down to a jutting base. In previous renditions, Peter seemed to exclusively pair this bowl form with an elongated, flared shank; here, however, he's mirrored that length with three knuckles of pale bamboo, while also compressing the bowl itself just a touch along the vertical axis. The result is a very Danish classical sort of design, one with clear roots in the Ivarsson tradition, particularly in the excellent handling of the the rhythm of bamboo and briar, as well as the interplay between the natural medium and the rather organic shape itself. Like all of Heding's smooths, this Nut also sports stunning grain, a vibrant flame pattern brought out through a warm walnut contrast.
