Claudio Cavicchi: Smooth Paneled Bent Egg (CCC)
Product Number: 002-400-2658
Poised and gestural, this bent Egg from Claudio Cavicchi features a subtle curvature and a forward canted bowl that makes for quite the striking profile. Paneling across the flanks gives the bowl a certain angular muscularity, with crisp, firm lines accentuating the fluidity of the design, while the fore and aft are softly rounded. The thick shank extends out of the low-slung transition, bolstering the statuesque height of the bowl, before giving way to a tapered stem of jet-black acrylic. This piece wears the honey-blonde stain that Cavicchi often favors, and it perfectly showcases the cross grain orientation of the briar across the sides of the bowl, with whorls of birdseye across the front and back of it. Sleek and streamlined, this piece offers plenty of charm and the playful design style that makes Cavicchi pipes so captivating, and it is clear to see why the Italian artisan graded this shape "CCC."--Davin Hylton
