Clark Layton: Sandblasted Blowfish
Product Number: 002-781-0027
Boldly proportioned and gorgeously finished, this Blowfish from Clark Layton renders the inherently organic shape in more stout proportions, reminiscent of the American Industrial design aesthetic. It's a striking juxtaposition as the shape's sweeping lines and subtle asymmetry are contrasted by a sense of boldness that continues into the bowl through the hearty shank and transition. That said, it's more reserved, minimalist take on the shape — the defining fins about the transition rendered more subtle and the flanks' bulging curves not as dramatic. This more conservative approach from Layton allows the muscularity of the form to take center stage, bringing to light one of Clark's signature sandblasts, full of grooved lines and dimpled craters. Lastly, for a modern flash of color, the dark chocolate stain is accented strikingly by a creamy white ring and domed saddle stem of fiery-hued vulcanite.-Truett Smith
