Tsuge Ikebana: Smooth Bent Acorn (D)

Product Number: 002-623-4394

Though overall a shape which shows well the strong influence instruction by Danish artisans has had on the Japanese school of pipe design, this Ikebana bent Acorn does display a nice dose its native culture's flare for organic, asymmetrical-yet-balanced composition as well. The most obvious aspect of this, of course, is the upward roll of the smoothly rounded rim as it follows its orbit upward towards the forward/right quarter of the bowl, but it also shows itself more subtly in the form of the bowl's body as well, which has been tweaked to present just a little more mass and an extra degree of curvature along the left flank, balancing things out beautifully.
