Castello's "Castello" finish is always used for only clear, smooth pipes, while the shapes in the "Great Line" series are nearly always sandblasted. Did "an unstoppable force just meet an immoveable object", to quote the Joker from The Dark Knight? Probably not, because had there been, a universe destroying implosion would have occurred - with Franco Coppo to blame. The artisan seems to have compromised by letting "Castello" take the finish, and "Great Line" take the shaping, which is on the larger side (and for Italian company that's pretty darn big) and Freehand(ish). The result is something that bears absolutely beautiful grain - with broken flames running all the way around the bowl, waves of birdseye on the rim - in a form that could not be mistaken for anything other than a Castello bent Dublin.
