Lasse Skovgaard: Smooth Bent Dublin with Boxwood Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-327-0784
Son of pipe maker Benni Jørgensen, Lasse Skovgaard began working for the the prestigious W.Ø. Larsen workshop at the age of 16, and by the age of 18, he moved up the ranks at Larsen and started fashioning the workshop's Straight Grain pieces. Under the mentorship of the great Teddy Knudsen, Skovgaard honed his skills and eventually began crafting pipes under his own name. He quickly rose to prominence, and he now enjoys a loyal following that prizes his pipes for their sophisticated shaping, handsome finishes, and elegant line work.
This bent Dublin is among Skovgaard's most impressive renditions of the classic shape, rendered in his consummately Danish style. The bowl features smoothly tapered walls, capped by a broad, forward-surging, domed rim. A subtle ridgeline runs through the design, from the rim, to the flank of the transition, and up into the curved and tapered round shank. Said transition displays a touch of cheeking, lending the bowl more prominence in the composition. Not to be outdone by the fore, the aft of this piece features a broad-flared and highly domed boxwood accent at the shank face, creating a balance in the visual weight of the pipe. Finally, a bent vulcanite saddle stem arcs smoothly outward from the conjunction, offering an effortless clench and stylish profile. Dressed in a light auburn finish, the bowl is resplendent with swirling, dense, birdseye, with streaks of cross grain at the fore and aft.-Gabriel Bass
