American Estates: Alex Florov Smooth Bent Bulldog (2009)
Product Number: 004-009-5763
Eric and I both agree that had this piece not been stamped and in the American estates, we both would have pegged as coming from the Italian school: the heft in proportioning seen in the bowl, the Pesaro gesturing, seems somehow eerily familiar. It is, however, all Alex's own, and I dare say his combined experience in art restoration, an infatuation with Art Nouveau, as well as his brush with the traditional Japanese aesthetic cultivated by collaborations with Tokutomi, have blended together so finely as to create a style that's all his own, however difficult it is to pin down.
