Doctor's: Smooth Bent Apple with Bamboo and Polymerized Dinosaur Bone (636) (Double Flash)
Product Number: 002-630-0082
From the gnarly bamboo shank extension to the polymerized dinosaur bone (yes, you heard that right) to the way the bowl seems to inflate from out of the transition, this piece is most definitely the result of Roman Kovalev's one-of-a-kind aesthetic combined with his incredible craftsmanship. There's so much to be impressed by with this bent Apple. The tucked transition boasts amazing carving ability while also affording the rotund bowl its perched-like orientation; the pairing of polymerized dinosaur bone and rippling bamboo is not only a striking aesthetic but presents an effortlessly seamless approach; the manner in which the bamboo shank-end rises above the mortise, seeming to envelop the base of the stem adds continuity to the profile. Then, at the stem, things get even more detailed: On the outside it's a fairly standard saddle stem, yet remove it and you'll notice the tenon comprised of reinforcing metal while the mortise is impossibly circumscribed by a trim brass ring for added durability. Stunning work from Roman and fitting in well with his eclectic and organic style.-Truett Smith
