Lan Zhenjun: Sandblasted Asymmetric Bent Egg with Silver
Product Number: 002-749-0025
A beautiful complement to this bent Apple from Lan Zhenjun, this bent Egg wears a similar color palette of dark sandblast and smooth-polished, chamfered rim, but trades the Apple's boxwood accent for a flashy, regal ring of sterling silver. Also in contrast to the Apple is this piece's style of shank — instead of flaring gradually toward the bowl, as the other pieces do, the shank here tapers into the transition, making for a visual separation between bowl and shank that accentuates the bowl's plumb waistline. Forward-urging and dynamic, the bowl also displays a hint of asymmetry when viewed from the smoker's perspective, the rim and waistline canted upward and to the left, aligning with the ripples of ring grain Lan expertly coaxed out through the sandblast. It's a lovely, compact piece that fits in well to Zhenjun's Danish style, but with his own creative genius sprinkled in.-Truett Smith
