Il Duca: Sandblasted Rhodesian (B)
Product Number: 002-427-0486
A pencil-shanked Rhodesian with a long and elegant form, this sandblasted piece from Max Rimensi of Il Duca offers a well-rounded bowl circumscribed by two crisp beadlines at the waist. Above those beadlines, the curvature continues for a particularly organic disposition that harmonizes with the concise transition, itself maintaining the arcs of the underside and the near-side flanks. The willowy shank-and-stem combination gradually tapers to the lip button, and the sandblast is low profile, though it certainly provides plenty of grain for the contrast stain to elevate. Max always manages to bring his own unique sensibilities to traditional shapes, and this Rhodesian emphasizes his skills.- Chuck Stanion
