Davide Iafisco: Smooth Bent Dublin
Product Number: 002-702-0047
Balancing a number of quick, crisp lines with some seriously stout proportions overall, this piece from Davide Iafisco offers a lot of substance without resulting in a chubby or muscular aesthetic — with those aforementioned fast, hard lines keeping the composition strikingly dynamic in profile. In the sliced off look of the heel, as well as the slight upward flick of the shank and subtle curve to the rim, it almost reminds me of some of Tsuge Ikebana's work — a powerfully poised rendition of the classic shape, with a strong sense of forward momentum in profile and plenty of reinforcing briar throughout. Apart from its gorgeous shaping, the grain is simply stunning, with a 360 degree display of finely stranded flame and straight grain enveloping the bowl, and a sea of tight-knit, whirling birdseye scattered across the rim.
