Sandblasted Egg with Bamboo (Hole in One) (13/57)

Product Number: 002-575-0036

Given his penchant for organic shaping and fine transitions, it should be no surprise to see bamboo implemented into one of Gian Maria Gamboni's briars. And yet, he doesn't seem to do this often - and from what I've seen only on straight shapes at that. Curiously, this bamboo-extended number is in a shape that you seldom see in a straight design at all: the Egg. Light and delicate indeed in style, this is a Gamboni that plays strongly to fine-boned proportions. Something I've noted in particular is how well Gian handled the bowl; in an Egg of this style, the contours if played right will produce a bowl that looks and feels as fine and fragile as a real hollowed-out egg shell, yet on closer examination will reveal walls that do actually retain a good amount of substance. That indeed is just how Gian shaped this one, much to his credit.
