Lasse Skovgaard: Smooth Acorn
Product Number: 002-327-0552
The upward-arcing, curling gesture of the shank on this Acorn from Lasse Skovgaard is a characteristic you can trace across quite a few designs in his body of work — often, as is the case here, employing Ivarsson-esque teardrop lines along either flank to really accentuate that sweeping motion. That being said, those designs typically feature more rounded bowl forms, rather than the strongly tapering, Dublin-esque rendition we see here. The result is something far jauntier than we've seen from Lasse in the past, with those aforementioned teardrop lines guiding the eye to the heel where they meet the strong taper of the bowl, giving it an almost rakish disposition. As is the case with all of Lasse's smooth-finished pieces, however, the grain is nothing unexpected: brilliant, tight-knit, and beautifully oriented flame all around.- Andrew Wike
