Il Duca: Smooth Bent Apple (D)
Product Number: 002-427-0328
Up front this Il Duca has a hard to miss plump and rounded nature, yet as you work rearward you come to a transition that shows a hint of underlying angular nature, before arriving at a shank-end and stem-base of sweeping, crisp style. It's not unusual for artisans to produce a play between contrasts in one given shape, but here Max has pulled it off more subtly than usual, and with a more gradual progress from the rounded to the swift. Along with that, he shaped it from briar that's packing some serious grain.
