Lasse Skovgaard: Smooth Acorn
Product Number: 002-327-0611
One of Lasse Skovgaard's signature long-shanked Acorn renditions, this piece does well to represent the carver's adherence to the Danish school and personal penchant toward the Acorn design. A common version from Lasse, this number displays a bulbous, flaring, and high-waisted bowl featured on the end of a lengthy, pinched shank. While the form does call to mind an intriguing mix of Lumberman and Acorn, with the abbreviated saddle stem and oval shank, Lasse has imbued it with much more grace and flow by swooping the S-curve as well as flaring the shank into the transition. Such aspects urge the eyes into the bowl, the lines of the shank flowing naturally into the bowl's wide-set, affably rounded rim. The highly inflate rim, then, is what defines this piece for me, the chamber set deeply within the supple curves which almost act as a chamfered rim but without any rigid lines to disrupt the organic aesthetic. Dressed simply and vividly in a stunning contrast stain, this piece highlights Lasse's carving and finishing abilities, showcasing the best of what the Danish carver has to offer.-Truett Smith
