Meteora Guarino Bent Apple

Product Number: 002-004-1935

While the Guarino is but one of a small number of a specific shapes names assigned by Ardor, the large bent Apple or Ball (depends on whom you ask) is one of the forms which helped propel Ardor to the forefront of advanced Italian pipe shaping.

All Guarinos are large, but the actual sizes can range from a bit larger than what you and I have come to think of as "Ardor", to a girth that can wander within hailing range of a Giant. This Guarino in particular falls into the former camp, hand-filling, but not so large that you feel as if you are sipping on one of those "exotic cocktails" that come in an giant brandy glass with an umbrella. I have long been a fan of the Meteora finish, and find that there is an interesting duality about it. On one level, the cubist frames that contain almost Pollack-esque swirls have a real mid-twentieth century feel to them. On the other side of the coin, when taken in one glance, there is sense of looking at the ochre, wind-weathered columns of the ancient Mediterranean areas. I find the combination both handsome and attractive, but your opinion is the only one that counts. What say you?
