Another decidedly Danish inspired piece from the likes of Italian carver Garbiele dal Fiume, this somewhat Ivarsson looking bent Apple is a stunner on account of such quiet nuances as the beveled seam that runs down the front of the bowl, then up around the bowl's backside, almost mimicking the the profile line of the shank terminus as it does so. The mouthpiece is swimmingly executed here; it's delicately small and looks infinitely comfortable. And just look at that blast! This is splendid work from Gabriele.
