Gamboni: Sandblasted Rhodesian (Hole in One) (15)
Product Number: 002-575-0019
Gian Gamboni is one of a handful of Italian artisans who have cropped up over the past few years offering designs that fall conspicuously outside not only the traditional Italian style, but even the wilder Pesaro school as well. As we can see in this Rhodesian's dramatically canted, very modern bowl design, in Gamboni's case there is what appears to be a strong influence from Paolo Becker at play. Seeing as how Paolo's own approach has grown increasingly iconoclastic within the context of Italian pipemakers over the years, it only makes sense that he would influence a more recent, and likewise artistically-minded craftsman like Gian.
