Lasse Skovgaard: Smooth Bent Egg with Bamboo

Product Number: 002-327-0726

For Danish artisan Lasse Skovgaard, pipe making is in his blood. A second-generation carver, his skills can be attributed to natural, raw talent in addition to having been schooled in the trade by his father Benni Jørgensen and from Teddy Knudsen, among others. At age 18, Skovgaard began working for venerated workshop W.Ø. Larsen, where many fellow pipe makers also spent time or for which they created designs. He struck out on his own in 2004, setting up his own, independent shop and has since made quite the name for himself.

This bent Egg is one of several such shapes in his wide-ranging portfolio. The tall, forward-ebbing bowl is topped by a sloping, concave rim, while the supple sides and plump, lifting heel are all results of a fine Danish aesthetic. An abbreviated, lithe shank extends from a pinched transition, with the carver integrating two knuckles of bamboo smoothly into the composition, thus extending that shank. A slender, downturned saddle stem of vulcanite tops things off in back and lends handsome contrast to the paleness of the bamboo. This pipe is rife with soft, precise line work and smooth curvature and is dressed in a handsome honey-blonde stain that highlights the briar's natural grain, with pinpricks of birdseye dotting the rim and heel especially noteworthy.
