Alex Florov Smooth Bent Bulldog (2009)

Product Number: 004-009-5763

When you look through the archives of Alex Florov's work, don't be surprised to find a wide range of influence; so much so, in fact, that it becomes somewhat difficult to relate his shapes to a school. His pipes can look as sleek and abstract as an interstellar space craft from Star Trek, as intricately woven as an Alphonse Mucha drawing, or classical and straight-laced (though he tends not to take that route most of the time).

Eric and I both agree that had this piece not been stamped and in the American estates, we both would have pegged as coming from the Italian school: the heft in proportioning seen in the bowl, the Pesaro gesturing, seems somehow eerily familiar. It is, however, all Alex's own, and I dare say his combined experience in art restoration, an infatuation with Art Nouveau, as well as his brush with the traditional Japanese aesthetic cultivated by collaborations with Tokutomi, have blended together so finely as to create a style that's all his own, however difficult it is to pin down.
