Grechukhin Design: Sandblasted Lovat with Silver
Product Number: 002-808-0035
Vladimir Grechukhin is known for his distinctive style and sculptural designs, but he's also incredibly skilled when it comes to the classics. This Grechukhin Design piece is an excellent example of that classic ability. Here we see a lengthy Lovat with a hearty bowl, displaying some cheeking near the transition and continuing its robust proportions throughout its shank. A smoky, crimson-tinged contrast stain dresses the sandblasted stummel, showcasing pulsating waves of grain as well as crisp, blasted birdseye. The smooth, neatly chamfered rim and bright silver band are lovely touches that further add to the traditional feel of the entire composition. And considering this is the first Lovat we've received from the Russian workshop, they truly delivered a magnificent rendition here.- Jeffery Sitts
