Davide Iafisco: Partially Sandblasted Blowfish
Product Number: 002-702-0059
The Blowfish is an excellent shape for showcasing different types of grain patterns, as the crisp, tight lines serve to separate the regions on display. So why not make use of the form to showcase some differing grain textures as well? Well, that's exactly what Davide Iafisco did here. It's a stylistic choice we've seen from him in the past, but in this case, it lends the piece a livelier sort of dynamism, the difference in hue between smooth and blasted regions differing only slightly. Coupled with that, the whorls of textured birdseye complement a kiss of plateau at the end of the tightly-curling shank, framed by a lane of gorgeous cross-grain. Lovely work.- Daniel Bumgardner
