Claudio Cavicchi: Smooth Freehand (CCC)
Product Number: 002-400-2272
A pipe like this needs little description of its grain; Claudio Cavicchi's "CCC" stamp provides that information and heralds spectacular flame grain beautifully oriented to its best effect on the bowl. This Freehand displays that remarkable grain in a muscular form with emphasis placed on the crisp, precise ridgelines that inform the bowl's shaping. The ridgeline along the rim splits into two separate ridgelines along the back flanks, merging together again underneath the transition. Together they form a sharp heel spur that contrasts the bowl's rounded, slightly drooping base. The black saddle stem follows the shank's upward sweep and provides just enough contrast to commend the fine tendrils of flame grain that cascade down the bowl's flanks. With a palm-filling bowl and breathtaking grain, this is the type of piece that can elevate any collection it joins.- Chuck Stanion
