While that cool, deftly executed, curling shank transition is something we have seen before, it only appeared on our site a total of 5 times, all within a period between 2005-2007, and then only on smooth compositions. As fascinating as I found this element on smooth iterations, the manner in which it plays out on this sandblasted adds, at least to my mind, a sense that I am gazing upon an ancient Monument Valley outcropping, a product born of erosion - created by the relentless buffeting of desert wind. The bowl is a tactile delight, with the previously mentioned curl affording an equally fine resting point for the ring finger of either hand. I can't imagine pipester finding themselves indifferent to either the grain or the beauty found within an unstained briar. Yes, this is (indeed) also a reverse-Calabash. Gotta love Rolando.
