Here Reiner Thilo practices the tired and true formula of anchoring a highly organic bowl-form by use of an architectural shank and transition. It's "tried and true" for a reason of course: it works. In this case, both physically as well as aesthetically, as the paneled shank allows this Blowfish to sit with aplomb. All that aside, what really caught my attention was the finish; the detail of that sandblast is just fantastic.
