Rolando Negoita: Sandblasted Freeform Gourd with Horn
Product Number: 002-298-0218
This is not a Walnut, but a Gourd, for the former is always rusticated and the latter in sandblasted, and this Rolando original features a strikingly deep blast as well as an equally impressive grain. Offering the full-bodied roundness of an Apple/Brandy and the high rim and deep chamber of a Stack, the naturally inspired, organic elements of the bowl are heightened when opposed by the architectural regularity of the shank. The rise and lower bulge of the bowl, in combination with the presence of a straight shank, calls for a full saddle bit to aid as a compositional bridge, and Negoita not only created a dandy, but one with a handsome horn inlay. This is classic Rolando, and we're loving it.
