1 of 4 very special collaborations by Banjo, Cowboy and Facet Mama. These masters of the form threw down extra hard on this incredibly limited set Banjo calls the ’03 series.
I picked this particular piece for its splendorous symmetry as well as how the sharp angles of the expertly placed flat cane catches your eye just right. The way the stacked opals in the facets refract light is breath-taking, and the faceted neck is a visual and sensory treat. In fact, the facets on this piece are some of the best I’ve ever seen. Last but not least, the line-work on this magnificent work of art is flawless, from the precision of the terminations on the bowl to the placement of the two reversals on the mouthpiece.
This wonderful work really exemplifies the styles that these three have perfected, and would be a great start or addition to any serious collection.
