Sandblasted Rhodesian (Hole in One) (52)

Product Number: 002-575-0028

How to sum up Gian Maria Gamboni's style? I'd go with Paolo Becker meets the latest wave of Russian artisans, and frequently dressed in the kind of muted-tone, quietly lovely, contrast-stained sandblasts you find in the work of Maigurs Knets. Sum that itself up and it leaves you at simply "beautifully eclectic". His pipes are charming Bohemians, of a sort. As it so happens, after Maigurs it is Gian's work that most frequently reminds me of the kind of easy, organic beauty of line and form, and richness of palette of the Art Nouveau movement; and who is the most revered artist of the Belle Epoque than Alphonse Mucha, a Czech who led a pretty Bohemian life, and created art with a Bohemian appeal? (Originally he was from the Morovian region, granted.)

And frankly, if I saw a Gamboni pipe being held by some beautiful lady or another from one of Mucha's paintings, it would look right at home. The colors, the contrasts, the delicate transitions and curious forms; these pipes are works of art themselves.
