Winslow: Smooth Freehand (Private Collection)
Product Number: 002-036-1855
Poul Winslow's Private Collection series is reserved for choice briars of only exceptional quality as deemed by Poul himself, displaying stunning grain and excellent shaping. This Freehand addition to the prestigious line is a fascinating hybrid of the Scoop and Volcano shapes with its forward-urging, squat bowl and curling underside merging the two designs into one cohesive composition. The entire underside is covered in craggy plateau, adding plenty of organicism to the piece and offering an abundance of texture for fingers to wander over. The bowl features a spectacular display of flame grain, perfectly highlighted by one of Poul's vivid contrast stains. The hardwood mount and shank accent are lovely touches that stand out just enough, without diverting attention from the gorgeous grain and superb shaping. Overall, it's an outstanding example of Winslow's artistic and energetic approach to Freehand forms while also paying tribute to the carver's early days working alongside Preben Holm.- Jeffery Sitts
