"Tomato" and "dynamic" aren't exactly two terms we usually expect to see used to together; typically if anything it is "squat" that precedes the former. Vladimir Grechukhin doesn't seem to mind. he's gone ahead and made himself one very dramatic, dynamic variation on the bent Tomato anyway. Aside from the smooth, dramatic sweep of the shank and a strong, elongated transition, Grechukhin has altered the bowl considerably. It remains short and broad, but the jutting, streamlined forward face, raised aft, rearward-shifted chamber, and canted mid-line mass altogether make for a very different animal.
