Gabriele: Sandblasted Bent Egg with Boxwood (Turtle)

Product Number: 002-533-0035

The second I laid eyes on this singular Gabriele Dal Fiume bent Egg, it was as if the frontal lobe of my cerebral cortex, the primary area where reasoning and self-control work things out, took a glance at its watch, and said “I’m outta here, yo?” Apparently love at first sight can happen.

The grace of the Danish school, the compression of the North American aesthetic, knife-like Rasmussen edges and a Florovian use of wicked angularity. While there are old saws such as, “A camel is a horse created by a committee” and, “Too many cooks spoil the broth”, when an inspired carver sets his mind to creating something cutting edge and extraordinary, the outcome may contain many elements which remind us of other individual carvers, but the sum is his alone and this magnificent totality, in my opinion, deserves a “Standing ‘O’”
