Alexander Tupitsyn: Smooth Bulldog with Ebony Wood
Product Number: 002-622-0006
Well, we've seen Tupitsyn do softly elegant, we've seen him do charming, big-bowled classics, and we've seen him do low-slung and sleekly curved. Now we see him doing hard, fast and uncompromisingly modern. and I have to say that so far he's pulled them all off with equal measures of aplomb. This is a dark, sharp composition, and it would have been easy to do it brash, but Alexander didn't. He did it precise and controlled, and for all the directness of the no-holding-back lines, he presented it all in a dark, subtly warm, very reserved chestnut finish right out of the old English school playbook. Then he went one better and discretely accented the whole thing in a perfectly chosen bit of ebony - an exotic hardwood with both modern appeal and an old fashioned sensibility.
