Gabriele: Smooth Bent Apple with Boxwood (Snail)
Product Number: 002-533-0023
Though there may be an Apple lurking underneath there, the rolling fluting and accentuated edge-work of this Gabriele briar's bowl lends it something of a floral look to my eye, though this is played down in the overall composition by the great, broad, sweeping design of the shank. Granted, while a slender, delicate transition and shank would have played more to the floral aspects of the bowl, as it stands, the more substantial and dramatic direction Gabriele took things has produced a lot more canvas for showing off this piece's impressive flame grain.
