Italian Estates: Ser Jacopo Rusticated Bent Bulldog (R1) (Maxima)
Product Number: 004-006-9811
Each artisan has their own tactics to "corral" a large or tall shape in order to create symmetry and balance. Some get it right, most get it wrong; here, Ser Jacopo got it perfect. The shank is surely what makes the piece: a finger-sized stretch of briar, smoothly delicate in its bend, lightly sliding beneath the lofty bowl, and hoisted up to create a sturdy, upright posturing. The result is a rather active profile, exuding a natural flow in a shape that feels classic, but not at all dated.
