Lasse Skovgaard: Sandblasted Acorn
Product Number: 002-327-0619
I'm not entirely sure I've seen an Acorn quite like this one from Lasse Skovgaard, but I could have sworn I had. I presume it's because I've seen a number of these Lasse-like shaping cues implemented in various ways: the wavy motion of the bowl's rim, the softly well-defined implied separation of the bowl by way of a neatly-tucked transition, and the graceful, easy gesture of the underside's defining line, to name a few. It's an elegantly understated take on this very Danish form, allowing Lasse to play with some tidy, neat curvature at the Acorn bowl's heel, as opposed to those more continuously sweeping iterations. The carver treated this to a light, Danish-style sandblast, accentuating some lovely birdseye at each flank, along with a nice spread of cross-grain at the fore and aft. It will surely make for a refined, yet affable companion.- Daniel Bumgardner
