Il Duca: Sandblasted Rhodesian with Bamboo (B)
Product Number: 002-427-0493
A Rhodesian with a long and elegant form, this sandblasted piece from Max Rimensi of Il Duca offers a well-rounded bowl with a soft, organically inclined arc at the waistline, matching the soft curvature at the transition and the heel. The willowy shank-and-stem combination highlights Max's use of bamboo, here presented in a dark form with two dramatic knuckles before gradually tapering 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 brings his own unique sensibilities to traditional shapes, and this Rhodesian emphasizes his skills.- Chuck Stanion
