Radice: Rind "Pure" Rhodesian (G)
Product Number: 002-030-1962
Each artisan has their own tactics to "corral" a large or tall shape in order to create symmetry and balance. Some get it right, most get it wrong; here, Radice got it perfect. The shank is surely what makes the piece: a finger-sized stretch of briar, smoothly delicate in its bend, gingerly sliding beneath the lofty bowl, and hoisted up to create a sturdy, upright posturing and a jaunty heel. The result is a rather active profile, exuding a natural flow in a shape that feels classic, but not at all dated. Quite unique indeed, the "Pure" unstained briar is somewhat of a rarity among makers, Radice in particular, and when it begins to finally tan, you'll be delighted to find it has become even more of an individual.
