Larry Roush: Sandblasted Rhodesian with Rope Finish Silver (S4) (2522)
Product Number: 002-830-0032
An incredibly stylized Rhodesian from the very talented Larry Roush, this piece is broad and low, its rim rising demurely from the ridgeline at the bowl's waist in a dome-like taper. From an aerial view, the bowl is circular and wide, but in profile it reveals a squat interpretation of its shape. The visual precedence of that bowl is ameliorated by the elegant taper of the shank-and-stem combination, a signature design style of Larry's.
Roush's own Rope Finish silver adorns the shank end, elevating the contrast of stem and stummel. That stem is presented in undulating waves of variegated colors and tapers perfectly to the lip button to complete the angular aesthetic introduced by the rim. The heel is carefully curvaceous to harmonize with the rotund nature of the bowl, and the sandblasting is deep and as undulating as the stem patterning, offering crisp texture in hand and a visual abundance of alternating grooves rising up the bowl.- Chuck Stanion
