Gabriele: Sandblasted Blowfish with Boxwood (Turtle)
Product Number: 002-533-0044
A very cool little interpretation of the Blowfish here. Gabriele is an artisan who takes much of his inspiration from nature, and that influence is seen here in how he took the already inherently organic/asymmetrical Blowfish and emphasized the former; in place of the usual flat curling up between the panels of the flanks, he's used a pair of shallow, gently hollowed channels. This not only emphasizes the organic, but it also mates with the rest of the shape all the better, the crease between the two channels, and the two at the outer edges of each, echoing (and one case, continuing) the edge-lines of the shank.
