Becker: Sandblasted Poker (Three Clubs)
Product Number: 002-007-0779
This is a distinctly different style compared to Federico Becker's usual fare of whimsical, wasp-waisted Cherrywoods. Here, the Italian carver presents us with a more traditional Poker, marked by a sharply flaring, slightly forward canted bowl and long, sleek stretch of shank and stem behind. The elongated stem comprises much of the piece's length, its gradual tapering accentuating the profile's streamlined nature. From there, the bowl rises stoically, housing within a well-sized chamber, the flattened heel allowing the piece to sit upright while resting on the stem. Despite the lengthy form, the slender proportions keep the overall weight quite convenient and clench-worthy, and it's all dressed in a stunningly textured sandblast, the bowl marked by subtly rippling growing rings, accented by the smooth-polished rim.-Truett Smith
