Gamboni: Smooth Apple
Product Number: 002-575-0126
This full-bodied Apple from Gian Maria Gamboni is a delightfully plump piece, seeming only moreso due to its being paired to a thin, flaring shank and short saddle stem. A slight asymmetry of line follows the briar's natural grain patterns and allows for a slightly forward-leaning heel, though there are no sharply-defined transitions here; rather, the line from heel through transition forms a gentle, graded curve. Completely natural in palm and delicately balanced, it has been dressed in a warm walnut contrast stain, it's another example of how Gamboni has taken a natural, organically-inspired approach to shaping.
