Grechukhin: Sandblasted Two-Tone Long Shank Blowfish
Product Number: 002-497-0112
In case you couldn't tell by my descriptions of the smooth-finished Long Shank Blowfish Vladimir Grechukhin has sent our way (all of which so far have been "G" grades), I've been quite taken by this turn in his shaping. Aside from sporting very different proportions from his more numerous, stocky Blowfish designs, these shapes have really shown off what Vladimir can do with asymmetry and line, in terms of producing a pipe that is interesting to view from many angles.
This one is both the first sandblasted example we've seen of this shape-theme, and the most organic in nature. From some perspectives, the bowl indeed appears positively floral.
