One way a carver can lock my attention harder and faster than a Doberman on a USPS flavored Milk-Bone, is to create (back-to-back) two extraordinary briars within the same milieu, both having roughly the same size and finish, and yet arrive at two completely different, but equally attractive results. I just finished describing a Gabriele sandblasted bent Egg (002-533-0035) that had fairly similar measurements and (literally) the exact same weight. That Egg was futurist, wickedly angular with knife-like ridges, and, to anthropomorphize to the borderline absurd, projected an anima that left me with the feeling that it would be far better to have that briar as a friend than an enemy.
This Gabriele Dal Fiume sandblasted bent Brandy, on the other hand, while showing a great deal of ‘Gen-Next’ aesthetic sensibilities seen in the previously mentioned Egg, is so out-and-out cuddly and charming, that I almost feel akin to a ‘Lenny’, from ”Of Mice and Men”, “wanting to hold it, George”. The equatorial bulge, and its subsequent taper towards the rim, almost reminds me of a garlic bulb (am I wrong?) and the exquisitely subtle ridge, which runs from the mount to the fore-tip of the bowl, accents that reminiscence. Warm, comforting to look at, and approaching nirvana in the hand, Gabriele finishes this amiable presentation with cumberland and olive wood. Hug me!
