Gregor Lobnik: Sandblasted Bent Apple with Silver

Product Number: 002-357-0126

Gregor Lobnik here presents a rather muscular bent Apple form but one that still exudes an elegant sense of poise and curve. Such seemingly contradictory design elements are accomplished via an elongated, upward-turning shank (in a style à la Lars Ivarsson), balanced out by the subtle recurve of the abbreviated saddle stem, and pinched nature at the flanks, resulting in a bowl that's more oval than rotund. As such, it's a rather streamlined form when viewed from the smoker's perspective, and the in-hand feel couldn't be more natural. With ergonomics in mind, the Slovenian carver opted for a sandblasted finish of rippling grain and textured grooves. The earthy contrast stain draws visual focus to a wedding band of sterling silver at the shank end, the bright hues echoed by the lighter-stained, smooth polished rim.
