Sandblasted Tomato (Kikuchi) (B)

Product Number: 002-623-4420

First, Sykes damn near wrecks my jaw with the announcement (and details) of the new star in the Ikebana heavens, then the heralded artisan totals the remainder of my mandible with this stunner.

I’m in safe territory when I say that I have seen nothing close to this from Kazuhiro Fukuda, and I feel that I am on equally stable ground in stating there are some wickedly-cool, Tokutomi-esque things going on with the bowl (specifically thinking in terms of the bowls of Toku’s Fish/Tomato). While Toku wouldn’t execute the tobacco chamber this far forward, I’d place my sawbuck against your doughnut that Asami-san’s poignant placement of the same would draw a nod of approval. The shank is something of a reversed reflection of the bowl, writ small; a perfect counterpoint, complete with an asymmetrical lilt in the opposite direction implied by the chamber. Part of me wants to start humming “This Could be the Start of Something Big!”, but, happily, ‘Could be’ has been replaced by ’Is’.
