Lasse Skovgaard: Smooth Tomato
Product Number: 002-327-0659
Squat, low-slung, and highly gestural, this Tomato from Lasse Skovgaard demonstrates the Danish carver's ability to consistently deliver unique interpretations of a singular shape. Previous renditions have been petite and flourishing or quite bulbous in the shaping of the bowl. This particular interpretation features a wide, compressed oval shank with firm ridgelines along its sides that merge beautifully with the bowl's lifted heel and accentuate the bowl's plumpness, especially around the transition where cheeking is evident. The bowl is Pot-like in its breadth, prioritizing width over height, and offers a comfortable in-hand feel with the thumb and forefinger able to wrap around it effortlessly. The chamber is of a modest depth, ideal for brief, yet flavorful smokes, and is surrounded by stout insulating walls. It's a charming design from Lasse and deserves consideration from fans of lightweight, portable designs.- Jeffery Sitts
