Italian Estates: Castello 'Castello' Pot (KKKK) (1970s)
Product Number: 004-006-14729
The Castello "Castello" Smooth Pot has a somewhat top-heavy shape for the Castello range, though this handsome piece of briar keeps a perfectly balanced composition, sporting a smartly shaped, squarely proportions bowl, delicately subtle transition, and straight, slender shank and stem. The grain is also very understatedly traditional but highly sophisticated, revealing a whisking, angel-haired straight grain and a delicately ethereal birdseye pattern on the rim. Truly a masterpiece of restraint, which may be the most difficult maneuver for an artist to pull off.
