Claudio Cavicchi: Brown Smooth Bent Ball
Product Number: 002-400-2548
According to our archives, we have only had a handful of bent balls from Claudio Cavicchi, and when the rare shape does appear, it is often highly stylized like this plump rendition. This is an abbreviated take on the design, encroaching on Nosewarmer territory at just over 5 inches in length, with a round, plump bowl mounted on a short curve of shank with a spur at the bottom. Cavicchi's deep brown contrast stain and smooth finish accentuate sweeping flame grain, an aesthetic matched by an expansion ring on the downturned acrylic stem. This lively offering could be the perfect choice for those who want an Italian neoclassic take on the form with the added benefit of being an excellent jaw hanger in compact proportions.-Joel Balyeat
