Grechukhin: Smooth Bent Apple with Polymerized Organics
Product Number: 002-497-0128
Stocky, chubby, and compact as can be, this is classic Grechukhin shaping all around. Unlike some of his more complex forms, this piece from Vladimir is far more reserved, toning down his use of asymmetry, panels, and planes and focusing solely on smoothness. And in that, it certainly delivers, providing a decidedly plump feel in hand while still keeping the overall weight of the piece quite manageable. The grain pattern is just stunning here in one of Vladimir's warmer contrast stains, with the array of red, orange, and walnut hues and shades all accentuating different depths of the block's flame.
