While the foundational way of thinking about shaping remains a constant, much like nature itself, the exact manner in which a given Tokutomi Blowfish will emphasize that aesthetic is always in a state of flux, constantly evolving. Some interpretations leave one with the impression of a softness, bordering on the liquid. Others, such as this, flash keen edges and almost seem as though they were planed/chiseled from stone. What is pleasantly nibbling at my edge of reason, is that Toku-san imbued this brilliant Blowfish with one of the most profound senses of movement I have ever encountered (pic #3), but did so (impossibly?) without a trace of yielding in play. Factoring in this new stain, the stunning boxwood mount and supernova grain, I’m thinking Tokutomi has – yet again - raised the bar.
