Lan Zhenjun: Smooth Bent Egg with Boxwood
Product Number: 002-749-0020
Full of soft curves and a dynamic profile overall, this bent Egg exemplifies Lan Zhenjun's penchant toward the Danish style of pipe design. An oval shank sweeps into the forward-inclined bowl, imbuing the profile with a strong degree of visual momentum — yet all packed into a rather compact overall size. Balancing the gradual curve of the underside and the lifted heel, the stem is slightly downturned, a subtle touch that brings the composition together. Plump of waistline for a substantial in-hand feel, the bowl is dressed in one of Lan's vivid contrast stains, drawing attention to the briar's grain. Vertical grain streaks the bowl, aligning with its forward cant, while birdseye populates the underside. A boxwood accent at the shank end sits in the background, adding a fine complement to the lighter hues of the contrast stain.-Truett Smith
