Becker: Smooth Billard (Three Hearts)
Product Number: 002-007-0575
While we don't see them as often as we did some years back, Paolo is still turning out his pencil-shanked takes on the straight classics. Personally, I'm quite glad that he is; these make for a wonderful case in point as to how an artisan can significantly alter a traditional shape while simultaneously both maintaining a classic essence and creating something distinct. In Paolo's case, the distinct is elegance: a result of slender proportions, soft lines for the bowl, and a very deft handling of taper.
