Gamboni: Sandblasted Bent Apple (Hole in One) (29)

Product Number: 002-575-0026

This Gian Gamboni bent Apple sports the expected smooth and natural style of bowl, fine transition, well-balanced taper of shank, and slim, poised stem-work that are all a part of this artisan's signature style. However, here he's done something a little different as well, namely, he's given it a good bit of stretch. Bowl, transition, and shank are all noticeably elongated, all while maintaining balance. Of course, it takes more than just interesting shaping to make it into Gian's highest grade, the Hole in One (his shapes are interesting as a rule, after all), and that's where the grain and finish comes in; great, smoky, beautifully defined and contrasted loads of it.
