Italian Estates: Gabriele Sandblasted Blowfish with Boxwood (Turtle)

Product Number: 004-006-23662

Given Gabriele's appreciation for nature and enthusiasm for emulating such forms in his work, it's not all that surprising to find this organic take on the Blowfish, rendered in a virgin sandblast. The shape itself focuses on asymmetry of line, lending the bowl an almost spiral-like aesthetic stepping down from the disc-like panel along the right flank. In contrast, he's left the left flank fully-rounded, making for a truly stimulating feel in hand. The crisp sandblast brings to light an array of rippling rings, and the virgin finish should take nicely to a patina with age and enjoyment. Condition is good, though there's some minor rim charring, mild chamber carbonizing, and the chamber is uneven from reaming.
