Italian Estates: Ardor Urano Panel (DR) (2018)
Product Number: 004-006-25142
While the Ardor workshop is well known for their bowl-centric, neoclassical designs, I find their paneled designs to be quite impressive. Here, a rectangular shank meets a more pronounced ridgeline just before the transition that then splits into four separate lines, forming the panels around the forward-urging bowl. The paneling allows for a firmer, sturdier feel in hand while the flattened underside enables this piece to sit stably on desk tops. It's all dressed in the rugged texture of the Urano rustication, making this design even more intriguing in hand with the rim left smooth for some subtle contrast.- Jeffery Sitts
