The Pesaro school is known for its neoclassical designs and elegant, artistic lines. This influence is evident here in Massimo and Andrea's loose interpretation of the classic bent Dublin, a signature shape known as the Pitcher. This one features an octagonal paneled bowl with crisp ridges. A bold heel continues these edges up into the shank and stem, creating a graceful transition that just works. As a "One Egg", the grain on this briar is no joke either. Flame grain dances around the bowl, and intricate swirling birdseye covers the convex rim. Topped with a unique silver mount to match the paneling, the result is a composition that just radiates modern elegance.
