Claudio Cavicchi: Smooth Rhodesian (CCCC)
Product Number: 002-400-2063
This Rhodesian from Claudio Cavicchi could easily be mistaken for a Danish rendition, with its supple curves and smooth flowing, consistent underside. The proportions are more of the Italian school, though, as the piece's visual weight focuses at the thick-walled bowl. It's no surprise that Claudio has graded it with four Cs — straight grain emanates from the heel, terminating at the perfectly positioned beadlines at the waist, while above, the 3/4 grain dissipates into birdseye at the rim. For a fetching accent, the shank-end features an acrylic ring of dark chocolate brown riding on top of the briar's surface for an inverted echo of the beadlines at the waist, a visual contrast highlighting the vivid contrast stain.-Truett Smith
