Sam Cui: Sandblasted Blowfish
Product Number: 002-687-0022
Sam Cui seems to have a predilection for the Blowfish shape, fashioning renditions of the form that run the gamut from distilled, understated renditions to those framed with a touch more flourishing, pinched linework. I'd say this fellow is somewhere in the middle, as it presents a more geometric, understated disposition when viewed from left flank, with a touch more curve and implied motion to its ridges at the right. Sam's opted to finish the piece in a dark, Danish-style low profile sandblast, with a good bit of stimulating texture from all that blasted birdseye and cross-grain, and nary a grain line out of place.- Daniel Bumgardner
