Il Duca: Sandblasted Acorn with Boxwood (B)
Product Number: 002-427-0546
Max Rimensi's distinctive finishing skills and shaping artistry are realized in this organic Acorn from Il Duca. The dramatically sloping, asymmetrical rim and high-set waistline towers over a sharp, brisk taper to the linear heel spur. The transition is tucked beneath the overhanging bowl and is followed by an elongated, gestural shank that subtly dips in the middle, then expands toward the plateau-covered shank end. Topped by a vulcanite stem accentuated by a rounded, extra-trim ring of boxwood at its base, this piece boasts a lengthy, dynamic profile and is dressed in Max's iconic, contrast-stained sandblast, with handsome stacks of grain laced all across the bowl. Comfortable in hand and amazing to gaze upon, it's this type of alluring presentation that has converted fans from all over the globe to Il Duca's masterpieces.-Angela Robertson
