Castello: Old Sea Rock Billiard (GG)
Product Number: 002-386-3911
Few workshops do rusticated finishes as well as Castello's Sea Rock finish; its deep grooves and prominent outcroppings are simply a delight to hold, adding a pleasurable element to whatever shape in which they are etched. In this case, that shape is a straight Billiard with the thick chamber walls and robustness often associated with Pots. With almost two inches worth of chamber depth, this Billiard is on par with house pipe proportions, having received an impressive "GG" size designation. Displaying a refined touch, Castello has left the underside of the tapering shank flat for stable sitting capabilities, and lending even more visual weight to the bold stummel. On this particular example, the Italian workshop's iconic rustication is dressed in a warm auburn stain, with the rim and upper bowl "fumed" to accentuate the rustic appeal with a weathered aesthetic and will hide any rim darkening that develops.
