Dasha Florov: Smooth Asymmetric Volcano
Product Number: 002-797-0002
As the daughter of Alex Florov, this is the kind of design I expected to see from Dasha. Though perhaps not as overtly sculptural as some of the Volcanoes we've received from Alex in the past, this Asymmetric rendition does showcase an excellent and creative sense of composition. Every line, every tapering bevel, every shift in direction is carefully considered, playing an integral part in the overall flow and gesture of the piece's silhouette. It's the kind of subtle detail that's part and parcel to Alex's aesthetic, which Dasha's taken on here with grace and poise. As dynamic and striking as the piece is in profile, I'm particularly taken with how Dasha's used all those complex, fluting lines to really frame the block's dense grain pattern — producing a 360-degree display of flame and straight grain around the bowl, with a vast sea of birdseye beneath.
