Gamboni: Sandblasted Bent Acorn (Putting Green)

Product Number: 002-575-0004

Though we've already seen several variations of this style from Gian Gamboni, this particular little number is easily the most dramatic. The finesse (and fineness) of the slender, pronounced transition is getting pretty daring here, bordering on the precarious. What's more, Gian also threw in a notably more conspicuous "spur" to the underside, serving to accentuate both the shaping of the transition and the long, lean taper of the shank itself as well. The shaping of the bowl plays into it all, too, with a full and curvaceous backside contrasted by a long, subtly concave line of the forward line/underside - itself then counterpointed by the pert, tighter curve of the upper bowl's forward edge.
