Lasse Skovgaard: Partially Sandblasted Bent Dublin
Product Number: 002-327-0708
Lasse Skovgaard is the son of renowned Danish pipe maker Benni Jørgensen, and first began making his own pipes at the age of 16. By 18 years of age, he was making pipes for the famed W.Ø. Larsen workshop, working alongside greats like Teddy Knudsen, and a year later began making the workshops' prestigious Straight Grain pipes. In 2004, at the age of twenty, he began selling artisan pipes stamped with his own name, and has earned his own place among the ranks of accomplished Danish artisans with his own unique, organic style.
This bent Dublin is an excellent example of his portfolio, displaying softly flaring lines and an organic curvature that makes expert use of the briar's grain. The bowl is a voluptuous affair, giving rise to tight stacks of ring grain that climb to a broad, undulating rim packed with smooth birdseye. The transition is pinched and raised, amplifying the bowl's cheeking and providing broad sides that perfectly showcase exactly how tight-knit the grain is, working in concert with the bowl to boast uniform ring grain all around. The crisp sandblast is finished in a two-tone stain that further accentuates the grain, with the rim and shank end left smooth and lighter for contrast. Even the vulcanite stem elevates the artistic composition, flaring subtly to a shoulder that reminds me of the rim's disposition before reducing to a lithe, hand-shaped saddle configuration. It is a truly beautiful piece with a bespoke, entrancing shape, sure to be a delightful and treasured addition to any collection.- Joel Balyeat
