Lasse Skovgaard: Partially Sandblasted Calabash Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-327-0599
Lasse Skovgaard has an eye for grain and how to best showcase it, as demonstrated in this lithesome, agile Calabash. The sandblast here reinforces the natural qualities of the grain in its concentric circles of growth rings crossed with tight, vertical grain. The shank widens to a plateau surface with a couple of prominent points extending from the circumference, so you wouldn't want to drop this piece. The contrasting culmination of all this interesting texture is the top of the bowl, which is slightly asymmetrical and smooth. The birdseye on this portion of the pipe would make Genghis Khan drop to his knees — it's a mesmerizing galaxy cluster of swirling interest that's as enthralling as deep space. Your mind will fly free through the universe as you gaze into this jaw-dropping dimension of birdseye.
