Claudio Cavicchi: Brown Smooth Rhodesian
Product Number: 002-400-2462
To date, Claudio Cavicchi has made many variants of the Rhodesian design, from long-shanked, tall-bowled versions that look more like a cross between an Acorn and a Lovat (albeit still with a prominent and bead-lined waist) to stocky, tight-knit numbers. This particular piece is incredibly robust with the muscular bowl prioritizing breadth over height though it maintains the shape's characteristic beadlines beneath the broad, domed rim. Those beadlines also do an excellent job of framing the briar's grain, with whorls of birdseye dominating the rim's surface while streaks of flame grain wrap around the bowl's flanks underneath. Just a stellar piece from the Italian master that ably demonstrates his shaping skills and expert eye for grain.- Andrew Wike
