Rolando Negoita: Satin Black Rusticated "Conducta" with Mother of Pearl and Tamper
Product Number: 002-298-0203
Rolando Negoita's Conducta designs are partly responsible for the recent popularization and dissemination of the "reverse-Calabash" theme, and, unsurprising given that, he's also been one of the artisans who's proven most adept at integrating those broad, hollowed-out shanks into designs that remain attractive - often in a "lovable oddball" manner. That is, as you can see, the very kind of character we're presented with here, in a tubular design that out-Tubos even Tom Eltang's original Tubos shape, with a big honkin' pipe of shank terminating in an eagerly perched, daringly slender bowl. (Well, it;s not actually that
slender, but rather creates such an appearance when matched to such an emphasized shank.) In an equally curious turn, Rolando's gone with a very distinctive accent, featuring a large ring of beautiful mother of pearl.
