Claudio Cavicchi: Smooth Dublin (CCCC)
Product Number: 002-400-2325
Sleek, straight pieces like this Dublin might not be the first pieces to come to mind when one thinks of Claudio Cavicchi's work, but his skill with a simple classic can't be understated. Claudio's Dublin renditions can range from the undeniably fanning, broad interpretations to those that are decidedly more trim in comparison, like this particular example. A lengthy stretch of round shank is paired to an abbreviated saddle stem, typically a feature reserved for the Lovat shape. Here the Italian carver has paired that configuration with a proudly poised, slightly canted Dublin bowl that commands much of the piece's visual weight. I certainly have no problem with that as the bowl features a mesmerizing display of excellent grain, highlighted in one of Cavicchi's gorgeous honey-blonde stains. Certainly a piece that's worthy of four "C" stamps from the revered artisan.- Jeffery Sitts
