Il Duca: Sandblasted Bent Billiard with Horn (B)
Product Number: 002-427-0479
While the vivid, contrast sandblast of this Il Duca bent Billiard might be the first thing to catch your eye as it beautifully showcases the nuances of the briar's grain — the shaping is the real treat here, to my eye. Max Rimensi knows his classic shapes and handles them all with such a novel sense of playful elegance, evident here in the long, gestural stretch of shank and stem that shore up the plump Billiard bowl. Of course, that contrast sandblast certainly plays a part in the composition's attractiveness, providing plenty of texture in hand as well as a lovely display of both the briar's growth rings and its wild flame pattern as well.- Andrew Wike
