Misc. Estates: Alexander Sokolik Sandblasted Fish with Olivewood (Unsmoked)
Product Number: 004-008-5767
One of the defining aspects of the Fish shape is its off-center, teardrop shaped shank, featuring a ridge created by the tip of the teardrop that travels the length of the shank. In this rendition from Alexander Sokolik, the Ukranian carver has done a marvelous job at dissipating the ridgeline seamlessly into bowl, allowing it to gently curve alongside the bowl's contour before terminating along the rim's fore. The teardrop shank and crisp ridgeline accentuate the bowl's plump nature perfectly and highlight Sokolik's keen eye when it comes to line work and shaping. Alexander has dressed the stummel in an earthy brown stain, highlighting waves of ring grain that travel up the bowl before ending at the smooth polished rim. The shank face is topped off by an olivewood accent, its color complementing the stummel's stain nicely and displaying some neat grain patterns itself. Unsmoked.- Jeffery Sitts
