Lasse Skovgaard: Sandblasted Tomato
Product Number: 002-327-0617
I quite like this style of low-profile form from Lasse Skovgaard, with its forward-ebbing presence presented in the tucked transition and lifting heel. The result gives the impression of a piece in motion, though the real joy is how comfortable it feels in hand. That transition makes for a particularly easy place to rest one's finger, while the panel at the base serves as a sturdy foundation. Indeed, it's suitable to keep the piece upright when rested on a flat surface, though more in the style of a rocker than a sitter. Of perhaps most note about this crisp Tomato, however, is the sandblast — a testament to Lasse's skill, it is crisp and light, just deep enough to display some unique patterns of growth rings, while also highlighting the wealth of birdseye at both rim and underside. It's a slick, elegant piece, and one that should serve beautifully as a smoker.- Rachel DuBose
