I couldn't even say anymore how many times I've pointed out the consistency with which Claudio Cavicchi delivers excellent ring grain. Even so, this particularly sturdy bent Brandy (a fine sitter, by the way) still stands out. The ring grain is exceptionally fine-stranded here, you see, and really, really packed in there tight. And on top of that, as is so often the case with Claudio's sandblasted pieces, it covers the bowl right across all 360-degress.
