Grechukhin: Sandblasted Bent Tomato
Product Number: 002-497-0062
Vladimir translates in older Slavic references as "to rule with greatness", and Grechukhin's briars exude both a definitive sense of power and intent in their presentation. More often than not, they also impart a subtle sense of organicism, as well as an implied movement which is rarely seen in workaday "strong/compact" interpretations. This masterfully sculpted, 4.8" Tomato powerhouse incorporates a nuanced left-to-right curl to the shank and an equally discrete shift to the opposite within the mass of the bowl. The gentle cupping of the rim, the smooth "keystone" mount, the amazing grain - Zounds. This is the very first Grechukhin which I have had the privilege of describing, and, if I can arrange for Eric to be abducted, it certainly will not be my last. Highly recommended
