Clark Layton: Sandblasted Blowfish

Product Number: 002-781-0022

The Blowfish is a shape designed to show off excellent grain, and this example from Clark Layton does that with aplomb — though in a way removed from the usual, smooth-finished pieces we often see. Here, instead, he has paired it to a crisp sandblast, really allowing the birdseye-clad flanks to pop, all while dressing the piece in a particularly warm, red-hued stain. The result is a combination of organic nature, precision shaping, and classic influences that easily identifies Clark's style amongst the American carvers of today, the cohesiveness of all elements impressive in its sheer execution.
