Italian Estates: Ardor Urano Shield (DR) (2008) (Unsmoked)
Product Number: 004-006-26010
The Shield shape is a unique one, marked by flanking ridgelines that divide the bowl's fore and aft sections, and it's rarely fashioned by Ardor, making this a seldom-seen piece. The ridgelines come to a point at the heel for an angular aesthetic, while the rest of the profile resembles an Oom Paul with its stretched bottom line, upward curling shank, and generous bend. Combined with the hard lines of the bowl, the Urano rustication offers an especially intriguing texture in hand. Unsmoked.-Truett Smith
