Lasse Skovgaard: Smooth Acorn
Product Number: 002-327-0595
While many of Lasse Skovgaard's pieces feature sweeping, gracile gestures, there's just as much charm to be found in his more subdued shapes. This Acorn is a fairly soft design on all sides, from the strongly lifted heel, to beveled rim and gentle transition. It features a more subdued bend compared to the broadly sweeping lines of some of Lasse's other work, instead using an upturn to the shank and slight downturn to its stem to create an easily flowing profile. What is dramatic here is the contrast stain, and the lively licks of both flame and straight grain that it's placed on proud display around the bowl, with birdseye tightly packed at the rim. It's not so much a change in style for Lasse, but a different application of his skill with line and proportion, making for a piece that is easy and simple, but full of carefully-considered details.
