Grechukhin: Sandblasted Blowfish
Product Number: 002-497-0122
We've seen quite a few Blowfish designs from Vladimir Grechukhin over the years, from the decidedly compact and chubby to the extremely elongated and dynamic. This one likely falls somewhere in between those two stylistic extremes — not exactly compact, nor as elongated as some of his Long Shanked interpretations, yet still defined by dynamic, even evocative lines and gesture.
The transition, for example, has been lengthened slightly, which, paired with the smooth arcing line along the underside and fore of the bowl, works to create a strong sense of forward motion in profile. From the smoker's perspective, those lines and proportions come even more alive, with the ebb and flow of the subtle asymmetry calling to mind a fish propelling itself quickly through water.
