Lasse Skovgaard: Sandblasted Bent Bulldog
Product Number: 002-327-0602
An unconventional bent Bulldog with breathtaking design elements, this sandblasted piece from Lasse Skovgaard features a low-slung, pronounced waistline and an extraordinary transition from bowl to shank. Those lines are not easy to do. They provide impressive shaping to the bowl in concert with the curves of the overall design. This is the area that most pipemakers with only a few years of experience are incapable of rendering properly, but Skovgaard makes it look easy. The shank, which is delicate but confident, then proceeds in triangular fashion until the top ridge smooths at the stem, which is an outstanding interpretation of the saddle bit. The color of the bowl is classic, distinguished from the jet-black stem. The grain is excellent, with near concentric circles of growth rings traversed by vertical grain. A medium-sized bowl, delicate, graceful line work and medium-short length make this pipe an irresistible option.- Chuck Stanion
