Claudio Cavicchi: Smooth Bent Egg (CCC)
Product Number: 002-400-2473
A bent Egg from Italian artisan Claudio Cavicchi, this pipe offers plenty of Italian neoclassic panache with a tall, gestural bowl paired to an organic, undulating transition and shank. The rim flows forward in a surge like a wave spilling forward into action, and the rounding around the heel is gradual but pronounced, climbing further up the bowl than I normally expect, and pinching the underside of the transition. The composition looks radiant in one of Claudio's signature smooth blonde finishes, illuminating well the uniform flame grain that earned this piece its three "C" stamps denoting quality. A brindled saddle stem of acrylic, a less-often seen color choice from Claudio, adds even more bespoke character to the piece. This one will make a great centerpiece to any collection, and its unique shaping and fine finish are a sure conversation starter.- Joel Balyeat
