Il Duca: Sandblasted Pencil Shank Pot (B)
Product Number: 002-427-0418
One of Max Rimensi's pencil-shanked offerings, this is a trim, sleek, and petite take on the classic Pot. Though Max is Italian, the shaping and proportions here cater toward the French school, being slender and arrow straight through the shank to lend the bulb of a bowl a more perched-like posture. The use of a pencil shank, though, makes for a stark contrast proportionally between shank and bowl, which caters to the Italian neoclassic school, though the overall size here is nowhere near a typical Italian piece. Having dressed it in an all-black color palette, muted stain, and reserved sandblast, Max has kept the piece rather conservative of presentation, allowing the shaping to capture all the attention.-Truett Smith
