Grechukhin Design: Sandblasted Bent Apple with Ivorite
Product Number: 002-808-0028
With a form that's reminiscent of Grechukhin's own long shank Blowfish, this Apple from the St. Petersburg workshop showcases his acute skill for fashioning shapes that maintain immense visual interest, regardless of the angle at which they're viewed. In profile, this long-shanked offering evokes the look of an Ivarsson-esque upward curve at the shank, however when turned one can see that it's triangular as opposed to the traditional round or teardrop styling. Given a dark, almost garnet stain over a low-profile sandblast and fitted with an accent of creamy ivorite, this Grechukhin Design piece is quite elegant in both form and palette.- Kaz Walters
