Claudio Cavicchi: Black Sandblasted Bent Dublin
Product Number: 002-400-2451
One of my favorite aspects about Claudio Cavicchi's signature Black finish is how the Italian carver incorporates a deep burgundy stain underneath the glossy, dark hue. What makes it all the more striking, too, is how much it contrasts against Claudio's other finishes, typically opting for a vivid, honey-blonde contrast or walnut-hued stain. Here, Cavicchi's darkest presentation adorns an every-so-slightly bent Dublin, the bowl urging forward from out of the easy transition, while an inconspicuous saddle stem keep the visual weight on the bowl. The plateau at the rim showcases the most of the aforementioned ruby tinge, and the stummel below has been blasted to perfection — revealing no shortage of tight-knit ripples of ring grain.-Truett Smith
