Rinaldo: Egea Collection Rusticated Freehand (01) (SL-8)
Product Number: 002-031-0271
With its paneled shank, controlled style, and firm presence, this Rinaldo Egea is what I would consider a very architectural sort of design. That having been said, it's anything but static or stiff; the lines and planes of heel and bowl, transition and rim all have plenty of smooth flow. While a smooth finish would seem the obvious choice for that kind of shaping, the tight, detailed texture of the Rinaldos' rustication makes for a very effective means of emphasizing this form's solid nature through its density. The warm, amber-tinged finish lightens things up a bit, while also pairing well to the contrastingly cool accent of sterling silver.
