Gregor Lobnik: Smooth Bent Apple with Silver
Product Number: 002-357-0111
Though measuring just a touch over four inches, this bent Apple from Gregor Lobnik still packs a serious amount of briar into such an abbreviated form, giving it a decidedly chubby feel. The bowl's nearly Ball-like in its rounded breadth, followed by a slightly elongated and stout transition, leading into the quick upward curl of the thick shank. That quick, flicking gesture of the shank does an excellent job keeping this chubby briar dynamic and active in profile, implying a strong sense of movement behind all that mass — a powerful aesthetic reinforced all the more by how Gregor's handled the shank end and stem base, facing off and then framing the former in sterling silver while giving the latter a slight dome. All in all, it works beautifully, especially with Lobnik's fiery contrast stain bringing out such depth and definition to the block's natural flame patterns.- Andrew Wike
