Grechukhin Design: Sandblasted Apple with Olivewood
Product Number: 002-808-0011
Vladimir's chubby style of shaping shines here in this compact Apple shape, the well-knit, defined transition and streamlined taper of the shank and stem affording more visual weight to the bowl's plump cheeks. Though not quite as obvious as some renditions, this Grechukhin Design does share much in common with the popular Devil Anse shape — both in its overall proportions as well as the bowl's strong forward cant. While all Grechukhin Designs are hand-shaped by Vladimir himself, Alexander Tuptisyn executes the finishes, and he's done an excellent job here — combining a warm contrast stain and a crisp sandblast to showcase both the briar's concentric ring grain and smoldering flame.- Andrew Wike
