Alex Florov: Smooth Blowfish

Product Number: 002-354-0179

Sure, in absence of a better title to choose from within our shape drop-down menu, I can live with calling this slinky, low-slung, and almost sinister form a Blowfish, especially because it hails from the imagination of Alex Florov, an artist whose Fugus haven't squarely fallen into the classic category since thinks, well... ever. What is really frosting my semanticist Wheaties, however, and something which would not bug me as much if I didn't love this shape to the extent that I do, is that I can't think of an exact aquatic analog either.

Having run across all three in their respective native environments, this 7.6" of serpentine sleekness is neither a sea snake, nor barracuda, nor even a moray (for that matter), but there is a distinct notion of sinuous movement implied with every admiring glance. The center bevel is painfully gorgeous and contributes to a wicked edge surrounding the entirety of the right panel of the bowl, as well as the rear on both sides of the same. When juxtaposed with the ridge on the top of the shank, a flare/hooding seems to take place (pic #9), and (man!), while that isn't something I personally associated with a Blowfish, I surely can attribute to cool.
