Rainer Barbi Smooth Bent Dublin with Celluloid (294) (CA)
Product Number: 004-005-4141
Having just spied this splendid bent Dublin in the describing tray, it (yet again) struck me how much I miss Rainer Barbi. Exercising a sublime hand at elongating shapes - well before it became almost mandatory to do so - and executing them in such manner that the shape merely seems like a logical progression, was all simply a part of a day's work for the late German master.
The subtle curvature of the shank and stem flow perfectly, widening gracefully as the shank approaches its juncture with the bowl. The rise of the bowl as it transitions off the shank almost seems abrupt at this point, surprising after the gentility of the shank. Such things were never accident in the hands of Herr Barbi. He sought to capture our attention, even our very breath, with stylistic shifts such as this - and he rarely failed to succeed.
