Lasse Skovgaard: Smooth Liverpool

Product Number: 002-327-0728

A second-generation pipe maker, Lasse Skovgaard's skills can be attributed to natural, raw talent as well as having receiving tutelage from such renowned artisans as his father, Benni Jorgensen, and from Teddy Knudsen, among others. At 18, Lasse went to work for the venerated W.Ø. Larsen workshop in Copenhagen, where several of his fellow carvers also spent time or for which they have created designs. Soon thereafter, he ventured out on his own, really hitting his stride when he began crafting pieces under his own name in 2004. The pieces that comprise his portfolio range from classic shapes to more creatively designed work.

We at Smokingpipes have never received a Liverpool from Lasse, making this lengthy piece a most welcome addition. Displaying the soft lines and gently rounded, supple curves associated with Danish classic design, the contours and nuances are wonderfully crafted. The bowl shows a slight taper toward its rounded rim and is poised at the end of an elongated round shank and elegantly tapered, hand-cut stem. The mouthpiece is a bit lengthier here than is typical on English Liverpool shapes, and adds to the streamlined, sleek aesthetic of this piece, while the stummel wears one of the carver's smooth, rich contrast stains that shows off the pipe's handsome grain patterns. Lasse certainly knows his way around a briar block, intuitively shaping this piece so that the grain orientation is emphasized. Beautiful freckles of birdseye dominate, with cross grain at fore and aft. This Liverpool is yet another example of the carver's prowess as a talented pipe maker.
